Robert and his family shark fishing in Puget Sound near Seattle, Washington
Great News... Miles Marine has just been awarded the contract to build the first prototype of the smaller scale version of the Safespace One Prototype Vessel SS-1-P Motorsailer.
Currently the drawing and drafting of the construction blueprints is underway. A small scale model of the hulls is completed and a table of offsets is currently being calculated. Simultaneously a location is being sought for the establishment of a shipyard location in the greater Chattanooga, Tennessee USA area. For more information on this projects please see this page on the Timestream Pictures website and also watch this short video.
The "Tanya" a 44' gaft-rigged Ketch, salvaged and rebuilt by Robert and partners, in Portland, Oregon in the 1960s. The ship was constructed of wood, but dry rot damaged the wood hull, which was later replaced entirely with steel. When completed, the Tanya was featured in "Sail" Magazine.
HULL MODEL SS-1-P
An early attempt to build the largest trimaran in the world. Construction took place in Sausalito, near San Francisco, California. This project failed and the ship project was never competed.
Here the Fairweather One 67' Catamaran Sailing Vessel is shown while under construction. Only one hull is show as it awaits transport to Long Beach, California for assembly. It was at that time one of the largest vessels of its type in the world. Fairweather One was designed by Robert and built by a large number of partners in one year,
The "Reel Adventure" 27' dory designed and built for fishing in Alaska .
Both of the SS-1-P hull's are the duplicates of each other. The overall length is currently being determined and the overall layout including length, beam, center section. and interior accommodations are yet to be finalized.
Boat Ownership Special Team Project
We are happy to announce this "Boat Ownership Special Team Project". A small limited number of owners will be selected to purchase or build a cruising vessel.Once it is outfitted we will sail it to the Atlantic and take it either to the Bahamas or do some extended cruising. We may also charter it for additional income. Those who are selected will as be included in a documentary film and will receive income from its distribution.

The smaller scale version of the The Safespace One Prototype Vessel SS-1-P Motorsailer has begun.
The Safespace One Prototype Vessel Designated (SS-1-P)
The Safespace One Prototype Vessel designated (SS-1-P) while still a concept ship, is currently under construction in the virtual universe. We invite you to assist us to make this dream become a reality.
Once actual construction begins our plans are to also use the SS-1-P in as a movie set. Construction will begin immediately once funding, and personnel have been secured.
Experienced ship builder and sea captain, Robert D. Miles has been working diligently to develop plans for a shipyard construction area as well as working out construction details and personnel requirements for building the ship.
Anyone interested in being a part of the special ship construction team should email us their pertinent biographical information as soon as possible.
The actual vessel, the SS-1-P, will be approximately 130 feet long and 80 feet wide, with five decks. The vessel will have approximately 25,000 sq. ft. of living and working area and wilh accommodations for twenty crew members and their families as well as spacious accommodations for up to ten guests.
While different locations are being considered for the actual construction of the ship, Chattnnooga, Tennessee USA currently tops the list of possible locations. Located on the Tennessee river Chattanooga and its surrounding communities have numerous connecting waterways which can easily support an ultra-modern shipyard with local support and skilled craftsmen available to assist the special Safespace construction team to rapidly assemble the ship.
Upon completion of the film the SS-1-P will begin a tour of East coast rivers, and cities and then head on a tour of virtually every major port on planet Earth.
Major media will be involved and film, video, motion picture, radio show host, and public relations, product placement, and people of all talents and abilites are invited to apply
