'Princess' Joan of Sealand independent state dies. What a remarkable story of these old anti-aircraft platforms.

I hate to hear that. I had a friend in HS who was always writing to these micronations. He was particularly fond of the Sealand folks. He kept up a correspondence with them well into the early 1990's.

I saw an article a few months ago that the son was having a hard time keeping the place up and running.

How chilling it must be to receive the command "Prepare to repel boarders!"

It would make a dandy platform for whale shooting.
