Abstract : This patent disclosure is direct to a spar buoy system within which a compressible air bag or container has been installed to stabilize a platform. The compressible bag is positioned with its center at the center of gravity within a fixed area and pressurized such that the bag collapses or expands due to surrounding water pressure. The surrounding water applies a pressure onto the bag such that the pressure within the bag is equal to the pressure outside the bag.
