1. A multifunctional carrying device for a tidal stream generator, comprising:
an elongated main floating body; and
a carrying frame, extending horizontally toward a left side and a right side from a center part of the elongated main floating body and having an end part used for carrying the tidal stream generator,
wherein:
the elongated main floating body is a central floating control pipe with two ends sealed;
the two ends of the central floating control pipe are configured with cable tying locations;
a pipe air inlet/outlet is disposed above one end of the central floating control pipe;
a pipe water inlet/outlet is disposed below another end of the central floating control pipe;
a remote air pipe has one end connected to the pipe air inlet/outlet and has another end connected to a control switch;
an orthogonal node component is configured to connect the carrying frame with the central floating control pipe; and
an automatic depth-fixing and stabilizing part, is evenly disposed, along a vertical bisection plane of the orthogonal node components, on rigid parts that are directly connected to the orthogonal node components.
