      I badly would like to live on a floating island.

      There was a really cool design that had three “mountains” and the residents actually live below the water with green on the top of all the above-water structures. Looked really neat. I can’t find it though, damnit!

    6. Actually, she was never meant to sail that way. She was a screw frigate (yes, that’s how they were called) built in the 1860s, and quite the combat vessel for her time. It was later turned into a “receiving vessel” used for housing crew when returning from the sea; essentially a barracks ship. All that housing was built upon the old hull.
