Ok it is not the kind of subject anyone likes to think about but sometime or other I am going to die.
Being buried is expensive and does not do much for your looks.
I could be cremated but that does not appeal to me either. They could scatter my ashes at sea but the chances are the wind
would be in the wrong direction and Auntie Rita and Uncle Bob would swallow and spit me out all over the deck
. Not very dignified, although if I got into their eyes there may be a few tears or even someone else staggering blindly overboard
I have thought about being stuffed and made into a figurehead but with pontoons the way they are I am liable to get my nose pushed in.
I do want my body to be of some use and my wife suggested I would make a good fender
but again I don’t think I would last long.
I could however go for the sliding off the wooden board under the flag and strait into the sea. It’s cheap
, non-messy and at least I could help a few fish
with their evening meal. OK, Bob and Rita may go in for a large cod and chips and get a bit of me but that’s OK.
Can you still be buried at sea or can you think of another suggestion?
