American Man and Thai Partner May Face Death Penalty for For Living in Houseboat Off Phuket

An American man and his Thai partner have been living in their floating platform home off the coast of Phuket as pioneers of the so-called “seasteading” (combining the sea and homesteading) movement.

The idea is to create permanent dwellings at sea, called seasteads, outside of the territory claimed by any governments. Proponents of the concept believe floating nations will “restore the environment, enrich the poor, cure the sick, and liberate humanity from politicians.”
