snap fit connections compare to normal marine connections
Permalink   
 


If we go really fancy we could have something like a train knuckle. It is a instant connection for tension/compression forces, compressed air, electric, and all you need in a train wagon maintaining flexibility between units. The monaco breakwater features such a thing to connect it to land. The bad news – not even train wagons made it to standard connections worldwide – they are different in every country and every train sistem.

The good news – once a standard implements itself – you can gear up your housing solution with such a piece later. Just like you gear up your old computer with a new USB port. So the most easy way to go seems to avoid a situation like “the module is the connection piece” and go better for “the module features a removeable connection piece”. This enables to connect houseboat seasteads to clubsteads without having a standard for the module itself, its shape and its size.

We will probably end up with multi connection pieces on a single family seastead like the travel connector of your laptop fitting and adapting to several US, European, standards. Or we may be stuck with tire fenders and lines (which are really adaptable) for a long time.

One “standardisation of connections” in marine ambient that is already happening is a flat ship side to allow a “gap free docking” as visible on the green container freighter and the cruiseship above. So keeping one side of the module flat for docking purpose may be a start.
