I think its very neat, I especially like the grids.

But what exactly is it for? Water vehicles, or air vehicles cause it does look like you could land something on it :)

Looks like it would need a counter weight, or it seems it would flip over with all that metal and fuel on one side.

Following up on the previouspost, relating to balance. I would assume a waterbased fueling station would use the fuel tanks to balance on. As a raft would balance on empty tanks. Try placing them on either side of the plaform either completely underneeth, or fithy/fifthy over and under water. And build a pipesystem running from those tanks up to the fueling pod. That would be nice. Maybe a tall construction in the mideel with a flag/light on top so people can see it far way, even when the waves are high.

I really like it. It will look teriffic with rusty and dirty textures. You can add some small objects for more detail like screws and ropes. Maybe it will look nice with a big sail and and a few ancres who keep the boat on the right spot.

I like the roof between the tanks :D.
