    all the layers on the boat are assumed to be the main deck..you`d have to choose from one of the designs unless you got a drat ton of money or four ships.

    well, the thing about diesel is you can run it on pretty much anything. so got some crude? dump it in. Kerosene? that too. hydrogen? need to add more oil but it`ll work. vegetable oil? check. alcohol? yup. so I think have a diesel engine tuned to take a wider range is more important than the whole turning zombies into fuel deal.

    a zombie apocolypse would end quickly... turns out humans are extremely good at killing things. so good infact that hey have to put limits on how muck we can kill... and thats for actually fast moving animals. give a red neck family some guns and a crap load of bullets and i think they would be fine.

    The containers are used because with the huge amount of orders for this item. There is a need for mass production especially with only weeks of production time left before the coming zombie apocalypse.

    It was a good article... Unfortunately I don`t agree. Depending on the latency period between infection and presentation of full blown symptoms,and the symptoms leading up to death, it is very possible that you could have a huge zombie population created with little to no warning.

    Max Brooks also brings up a very good point in WWZ, everyone in law enforcement, the military and paramilitary organizations are trained to shoot center of mass, not head. It looks real easy in the movies, but in reality a head shot on a moving target while on the move is very difficult, so rednecks with guns are not a viable defense.

    This is a stupid idea. why is there an assumption that zombies cant swim?! they can walk fine. they certainly arent going to drown. Putting yourself on a river like this - you have no access to stores that might replenish ammo. where is the lye supposed to come from all the time?! there is a pathetic little water collection store. Is everyone going to drink mississippi river water? If the boat catches fire.. if it develops an irreparable leak - the emergency boat is inadequate and indefensible. This is a death trap. Mobility is NOT necessarily the key. It would be better to go and take over a bunker somewhere with access to an underground aquifer and hydro/thermal generators. Mobility in a world FULL of zombies means preferably air mobility and an unassailable base. Or at the least you could occupy an oil platform with desalination capabilities... it would still have the ammo problem.. but would be safer than a riverboat with a few sad little 50cals.

    There are so many problems with this!! Ok.. lets look at using zombies for fuel. Assuming that the zombie apocolypse is due to a blood/body fluid based transfer of some disease - you`re gonna have to have this highly dangerous material on your supposedly safe barge all the time. Someone will have to deal with it. And of course when someone gets inevitably infected you`d have to hope they were killed by the others before they went all-day-buffet on everyone. Then theres the little problem that you`d need fuel. Hell.. you`d need a LOT of things. simple and complex. medicines, batteries matches, lighters hell.. toilet paper.. things that are just taken for granted in life. You`d need them in an ongoing way. Some of these things - weapons and fuel for instance - you`d need a LOT of, and you`d need ALL the time. Theres inadequate means of transporting these things - unless you want to pull your whole safe barge onto the shore or make multiple trips - every trip could bring death..

    15. Ammunition would be something only used in EMERGENCYS, you can easily do away with a zombie with reusable weapons like harpoons and bladed
    weapons, remember, your a good 4-5 feet out of the water, you have the utmost advantage over them. it would be child`s play to spear one of them
    and then decapitate it as your buddie hauls it up.
    16. Again you mention fuel, which was never a problem to beguin with.
    17. If for some reason you needed to bring the vessel to shore, like trying to find another few survivers, it is easily equipped with the means
    of which to clear the landing, From there they have a vehicle, and last time I checked, when a car hits a person it doesn`t exactly stop the car,
    and a person isnt exactly going to stop it any other way ether, that is assuming the residents are stupid enough to try to use a normal vehicle.

    Anything else our little needy survivers want? maybe space suits and automated sex toys?

    Aww damn, I just realized something while I was writing that, why the HELL do we need fire again? Last I checked you can run a stove, heating,
    lighting, microwave, hot plates, ect. off of electricity, which they have.

    13. you said lighters... again look at #12
    14. Toilet paper isn`t a big issue ether or a nessicity, you dont NEED it, but anyways, you have a bunch of dead bodies that your liquifying
    right? well they got clothing don`t they? and like hell your gonna wear it, so why don`t you just boil it to sterilize it and then do away
    with it like a good little surviver?

    10. Last time I checked most people didn`t need 5 perscription drugs to keep going on every day. The most you would need would be easily
    obtainable over the counter, while yes you might need quite a bit, again easily obtainable.
    11. Why would you need batteries? and even if you did, you have solar arrays and rechargables.
    12. if you NEED matches to make a fire I pitty you. Lets count the other ways we can make fire on this ship. Flint and steel, easliy obtained;
    electrical spark, allready on board; focusing light, you can do it with a soda can or any thing that is `curved and shiny`; Gunpowder, You have
    ammunition on board, its not that hard to get the bullet out of the casing, and you have a nice little pin mechanism, in the casing too,
    Friction ignition, or as you may know it, `rubbing two sticks together`. thats four different ways just off the top of my head.

    7. While catching the infection may be a general concern, most people arn`t that stupid. First and foremost like i said before, the only way to
    get the zombies on board would be with a hook of some kind, such as a harpoon. and with that, the zombie is securly 5-6 feet from you, so even if it
    was still kicking you wouldn`t be in danger. if the problem is while making the fuel, well most people would know how to handle `volitile`
    substances, this was taught to you again, during highschool chemistry
    8. Buddy System, nuff` said, but I`ll give a better reason. If someone DOES get infected, that still woudln`t be much of a problem. more then likely
    the residense of the barge would keep small arms on them at all times, and it would be KNOWN who was dealing with the substances at the time,
    so easily identifyable.
    9. Uhh.. you said fuel again... allready explained that in step 2.

    4.Fire, while yes it is a hazard it would only truly be a problem for the fuel on the last barge, and even there there isn`t anything to spark it
    there. You see most modern boats are made of a thing i like to call metal, which isnt flammable. And the two things that are flamiable on the boat
    ie. the fule and compost, woudn`t be easy to light on fire.
    5. Leaks are no problem. Unless there is a huge gash in the bottom of one of the boats it would be easy to repair, thats why you dont hear of any
    modern day boats going under due to `leaks` they allways ether tear giant gaping holes in them or get capsized, the latter being impossible on a barge.
    6. The emergency boat is for EMERGENCYS, it doesnt need to be defensible, it just needs to be fast, and those are. and yes it is easily adequate.
    you wouldn`t be trying to save the world population on this, just a select few survivors, if it is STILL inadequate to you, you could easly fit
    a second one on there.

    2. Lye isn`t as hard to make as you might think, Potash is the easiest way to make lye, and guess what it`s made from, ASH, which you have
    plenty of with a bunch of dead bodies to dispose of. I know what your thinking `but you just said that zombies couldn`t get to you in the
    Mississippi river` ah but they can, they just can get UP to you, and Harpoons have a great little barb on the end for being able to stay in what
    you peirce with it. So there, an easy way to make Lye AND get fully dead zombies on your ship.
    3. Make sure you know the difference between `clear water` and `Potable water` Potable water would be water that can be CONSUMED, you dont
    need perfectly clean water to wash things, for showers, flushing toilets ect. At that making Potable water isn`t hard ether, it just takes a
    distillery, which im sure if you have graduated highschool you know how to make that.

    @Miasmatt
    Your missing SEVERAL things about this that make it better then you think, I`ll just go in the order you mentioned them.

    1. If we were to assume Zombie can swim, the Mississippi is a RIVER, a rather STRONG one at that, Zombies attempting to swim out to the `barge`
    would be swept away. Again with this fact in mind it is almost impossible to climb up the side of a boat, last time i checked you usually had
    to throw a ladder or haul up someone in a man overboard situation.

    This is a fantastic medium term option except for the necessity to return to land relatively regularly to resupply methanol, engine parts, replacement solar array parts, decaying rubber sealants on storage etc. This poses a risky option unless the time is taken beforehand to know where to source these and finding a safe way to do so. The size of these barges and the technical expertise required to build, maintain and operate the given parts is bordering on impractical.

    If you know how to solve these problems it looks great but if there are large enough teams of people undertaking this it may be better to apply the same principal to a large-scale container ship on the east Atlantic coast.

    Creating fuel in this manner is not very efficient and would need a huge quantity, there is space for this kind of production on a container ship with enough above-deck space for a farm and established living quarters that run of engine-generated power.

    Great concept and will

    if there are ever zombies-think of it this way,itd be wiser to just find somewhere that is safe and has necessities,because its highly improbable that a zombie apocalypse will occur. Sure if zombies happen its not a good thing but we are superior and they are just rotting slow moving bags of bones who have no idea how to open doors,oh did i mention-rotting..therefore,they`re essentially pinatas for nature haha,we as humans are fragile somewhat,but we have ways to avoid problems,zombies are brainless. They will freeze,they will decay to the point theyre dust. Also why the heck has no one pointed out,ever,that people in zombie movies are so FREAKIN predictable ?

    @ Kivaen, by the time the military have had time to respond the number of zombies could be overwhelming, thousands of the public could fall before news is out. 20 zombies clambering on you would tear off armour and it restricts movement and sight (if wearing headgear).

    Additionally zombies decay but do so much slower than actual dead bodies as they are moving and constantly ventilated, it has to be very cold for them to freeze solid as they are moving, ensuring frictional warmth in joints. If zombies were ever real we`re pretty screwed...

    If zombies can`t swim, you`d be better off setting up on an island. The size of the island depends on the number of survivors you have at your disposal.

    For example, if you have about 50 survivors, and you`re British or Irish, the Isle of Man might be viable:

    Isle of Man on wikipedia

    Stealing the idea wholesale from Day of the Triffids, get yourself set up in a stronghold on the island, then construct a "pen" on the edge of your stronghold wall, with a controlable gate to let zombies in. Open the gate, allow the pen to fill with zombies, close the gate, and kill them from outside (through a fence) or above the pen, using stabbing/cutting/blunt weapons. Dispose of the bodies, and repeat.

    The Isle of Man has 80,000 residents. Assuming worst case 100% zombification, dedicating 25 of your 50 survivors per day to the task, and 10 kills per day per survivor, it`d take about 10 months to clear. Then you`re zombie-free for good.

    Alternatively, get hold of a large ship. A cargo ship or a ferry with a large cargo deck would be perfect. Moor it to a dock in such a way that zombies can easily walk on board. Secure off the bridge area of the ship to allow a few brave survivors to act as bait to draw zombies into the ship. Then, when full, set sail to open sea, point the ship in a safe direction, jam the controls, then hop into the helicopter parked on top of the ship and fly back home.

    Do this with a large enough ship, and you could clear the island of practically all mobile zombies in one go. Then you`d just need to hunt out any stragglers.

    Musuko42, good idea in theory, but what about the law of diminishing returns? You would not be still bagging 10 each a day in the last month or two, and may even need to seek out the stragglers at the end. The real danger lies in entering a deserted building, not knowing whether all the inhabitants had entered your abattoir pen

    "WEAR SOMETHING A ZOMBIE CANT BITE THREW. I dont know,a PVC STORMTROOPER OUTFIT ?"

    Even motorcycle leathers would do. Though you`d want a waterproof layer underneath just in case their infected fluids seep through the leather and get into any cut or graze. A wetsuit would do.

    You`d just need to improvise some neck protection (some kind of tube of thick leather perhaps?) And also fashion something to secure your gloves to stop them being pulled off. Duct tape might even do in a pinch.

    @bankvole

    Hmm. Good point. However, the threat of zombies is not an individual zombie (unless it`s a 28 days later zombie, which doesn`t count).

    The threat is being mobbed by them. Once you`ve cleared enough of them that they no-longer quickly fill the pen, then the threat is drastically reduced.

    The stragglers might be safest dealt with in the same way wild bears and wolves are dealt with in parts of America; when you go outside, go with company, go prepared, go trained, go armed.

    It might take five years before the last of the stragglers are encountered and destroyed. Five years of having to remain alert and careful when in the "wild". But that`s not too bad given the situation.

    Meanwhile, you can be expanding your stronghold; clear out a small town and an area of farmland to 100% certainty and wall it off.

    Regards deserted buildings, there may be another option. Apart from absolute necessity (getting medical supplies from a hospital, etc), it`d be best leaving them entirely.

    Need to expand from your stronghold? Build a town from scratch, rather than inhabit an old one.

    Finally get secure enough to be confident enough to deal with the straggler problem? Don`t enter the buildings; demolish them from the outside (bulldozer, explosives, etc). Or pull the roofs off (grappling hook, steel cable, truck) and let the weather get in and destroy them.

    Any zombies inside will either get crushed and destroyed, trapped beyond hope of getting free, or will get free and be dealt with by the cleanup crews, out in the open where it`s safer.

    According to Max Brook WWZ and the survival guide zombies can`t swim but can walk the waters floor so an islands isolation is negated. Also in WWZ people did live on ships but their problem is eventually they had to make landfall for supplies and if you get one infected aboard your now trapped in the middle of the water in a boat full of zombies.

    "According to Max Brook WWZ and the survival guide zombies can`t swim but can walk the waters floor so an islands isolation is negated."

    Damn.

    Hmm. Maybe an island can still work, but you have to fortify it. Once you`ve cleared the native zombie population, you have to deal with the ones who walk the sea floor to reach you.

    That brings up a question; can zombies "smell" the living over that great a distance? Will the zombies who wade to your island just be random chance wanderers, or will they be a concerted stream of zombies aiming for you?

    If the former, things aren`t too bad; fortify the shores, set traps and fences, post guards, have emergency drills in case of breaches, etc.

    If the latter, we`re pretty screwed; as sooner or later you`d have six billion zombies making their way up your beaches.

    I keep coming across people claiming zombies would just walk on the bottom of whatever body of water.... unless it is a lake they arent walking anywhere because the current would just sweep them off their feet

    The current would indeed do that, but they`d still end up getting washed up on islands all over so the point stands. Also, you have a very clever name.

    Interesting idea but while I`d not be so worried about the zombies I`d be more worried about the more agile and smart survivors who`d be attracted to it. You really become everybody`s enemy with that setup.

    To the rest of you if you haven`t read aombie survival guide or WWZ read them good stuff! Although it`s for classical style zombies 28 days later zombies are not covered.

    Pretty much what Rubn_Tizzub said. You`d get the crazy surviviors that would want the ship too.
    Me? I`d just build a rocket and fly to the moon.

    I don`t mean to deflate your brilliant ship idea, but the living quarters look immensely unstable. Any rocking from waves or kickback from the larger guns could send them knocking over. Tweak the residence and you have a solid anti-zombie plan :)

    Problem here is how do you continue finding methanol? Production is a pain and takes resources you don`t have to make a suitable batch.

    For the most part, a large vessel in the Mississippi is just an exposed target. You`re hull probably isn`t that strong against explosives. And fuel bombs and cheap RPGs would probably devastate the top deck in mere seconds.

    I don`t think that boat would be able to move right with all that weight shifting behind it. and it would also probably need a heck of alot of fuel. you would also get stuck alot. i would rather just build grilles and fort up my house, and just try and outlast the zombies. you probably have to be pretty much a hermit anyway to live on a boat like that.
