A very cool idea, indeed! For all of us in our 40's, remember how we'd all be living on the moon, or on a floating city, by 1999? Well, that's what all the sci-fi magazines used to say, in the 1970's.
I read once that some of the folks who were with the Studebaker corporation in the 60's, had tossed the idea of a floating auto factory, around. Anchor it near someplace with cheap labor, and when a coup, or revolution came along, haul up anchor, and float away to safer places!
Oh, and YVR
, remember, as Bart and Homer sang, from the same episode..."You can't win friends with salad!"

If you don't stand for SOMETHING, you'll fall for ANYTHING.
