LOL Well, I have considered adding a vertical container for construction of the rocket and to be used as a salvo, that would also allow us to move the rocket without causing much fuss.

There was a response on arocket about at sea launches provoked by a comment from Copenhagen Suborbitals and their self propelled barge. My response to that was:

In my years at sea with Mel Fisher hunting treasure and my
experience with my dads salvage company "Marine Recovery" being Navy not
withstanding. Having part in building the "Sea Quest" My fathers
recovery vessel that we bought as a burned out hull and rebuilt from
that with an engine we raised along with the shafts stuffing boxes and
rudder from a sunk commercial vessel and rebuilt in our backyard. (the
massive engine that is which we got going by welding a driveshaft from
the engine to the rear wheel of our old pickup truck)

We used barges to do recovery sinking them on top of the sunken vessel
chaining to it and then pumping the barge with air and dragging the
whole mess to shallower water for salvage operations. Too and from the
Gulf into Matagorda Bay.

I can handle a barely loaded barge with a 100 ton vessel just fine :)

I would like a self propelled barge perhaps that is in the future? But
we are straining our resources and my resourcefulness to the limits
doing this as it is :)

Don't worry about the seamanship part I got that covered. The Gulf is
also somewhat more forgiving than the North Atlantic Ocean.

I thought i posted earlier about using cargo containers for a barge but the post seems to have disappeared for me but as you have seemed to reply to it is it still showing for you?

Ah well maybe No Such Agency doesn't like competition for stroking white cats :wink: :twisted: be careful and good luck with any sea launches.

Russel Blink at Armadillo/EXOS is doing the CNC machine work! We may also do some joint operations on Matagorda with them.

Anthony Cesaroni CEO at CTI is doing a 3D render with ultrasonic smoothing. To help us out.

So this is our biggest project so far!

Do you have any videos online firing liquid fueled rockets?

No, we are working on this pump and it will likely be next year before we test fire anything liquid.

The shop is finished! I restored a south bend heavy 10 and the bridgeport. Now we can really get to work!

We just took delivery on a 7 1/2 ton 10x1/4 metal shear for cutting stainless to make fuel and oxidizer tanks.
