My Hunter 34 is fully equipped to make the safe passage. I have AIS to keep the MEGA ships from running me over. I really would like to take a Spanish speaking person along. Anybody with sailing experience that speaks Spanish please contact me if you have the time to make this journey.
It is my understanding that it is not an issue with the logistics of moving the remains.... But rather the red tape involved in releasing the body. I speak enough Spanish, and IF we get the green light, I would be happy to crew

Just completed phone call with SENATOR MARCO RUBIO Miami and Washington, D.C. office. We have assertive action.

I will make ready to set sail.

How did he die?

Missing Florida boater’s body found tied to his vessel in Cuba - Florida Keys - MiamiHerald.com

"A missing boater expected to arrive in Key West two weeks ago after traveling from Fort Myers was found dead tethered to his sailing vessel on a rocky Cuban beach earlier this week.

Cuban authorities found Jay Wesley Rydberg’s body alongside his 39-foot trimaran boat, the 3/4 Time, on Tuesday on shore about 44 miles east of Havana, said George Toms, Rydberg’s friend and Key West neighbor."

How do you plan on transporting a body? If hes been cremated couldn't his remains be shipped?

I think the eagerness and motivation can overcome. There's always the v berth.

I guess if hes been embalmed and sealed in a casket, it wouldnt be so bad, there are bodies on almost every large flight be so much easier if he family could arrange a flight ,, i wonder what course of action they have taken.
