    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!

    Hey its Franklin,
    Coming over to play,
    Growing a little every day,
    Here he comes with all his friends,
    They’ve got stories, time to spend with you,
    Hey its Franklin,
    coming to your house,
    Hey its Franklin,
    coming to my house

    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.

    @American Perv: Is that not an outrigger on the left?

    , thanks for the info. I love naval tech and history from that era but don’t know enough about it.
