Best solution for the living is to put your probably dead body into a body bag: https://books.google.co.nz/books?id=...%20sea&f=false

Whether you can keep the body or not, document everything in the utmost detail, including photos and video. Try to cover all the bases, because you can bet the police will be very suspicious. Especially if it's a spouse and there is insurance involved.
True Ö it would be easier for me. Iíd be dead .

Actually, Iím not trying to treat this too lightly. It would be horrible for me or my spouse. My point is, we donít care about the body. Itís just meat at that point.

However, your challenge suggests that customs folks in the next country knows how many people are on board. Is this the case? If so, this is news to me. If I show up after a crossing and say I soloed (my partner being donated to the briny), youíre telling me they know how many people are supposed to be on board? I did not know this...

Re: health insurance?...

The USA doesnt require clearance out so if you are going to, e.g., the Bahamas, they know this and only find out how many people are on board when you get there. Most other countries (all of them that I have been to) require outward clearance and the authorities at the next port want to see that clearance before they let you in.

True, but neither does Canada. Do other western developed countries require outward clearance documentation? Seems to me the solution is to point the bow towards one of those locations.

In any case, this is a silly concern. How many cruisers die on their cruise? Yes, it happens. So do lotteries and four-leaf clovers. Not something to seriously be concerned about for most of us.

Yes in many cases they do because a typical clearance document from you last port has a crew list.

And, even if not, there are of course legal issues to deal w after a death. Good luck with probate if you have no proof of death.
