Thank's for the nice words.
Steel is the prefered material for ships in most of the world, and shipyards today have a grea knowleage in protecting steel in ships.
----- Ferro-cemetn did come in mind with this project, but even this will add expenses as then the idear of sheet material and what you save with these in this method is partly lost, besidee for any shipyard, there will be no difference building a ship or a Barge bridge , ------ it is a specialised but also simplified "ship" sort of say, and with a row of these, you can calculate having one spare, to replace the one that need maintainment or repair.
I am qyite sure that vessels do very good in those cases where nature go to maximum, beside as float bridges they will be placed in protected waters , they be easy to repair to.
To open a bridge, one section just sail away while the others stay.
Today with satelite navigation, this can even be remote controlled or the barge can find it's place pre.programmed.
It is difficult to ansver what kind of architect I am, ---- I did spend 4 years at the architect school and had a few profesional projects at the danish states workshops for arts and crafts, but boat and shipsbuilding is my origine , and I call myself Designer rather than Architect, --------- with some project most would call me engineer.
