Chopping up is not an option
Why not? If you shopped someone into packable sized pieces they might fit in the icebox. Any undertaker worth his salt could put Humptey back together again. Use the organs for chum and get some great pics of a shark feeding frenzy.

It was common for my Air Force rescue buddy working in Alaska to have
to kick at an arm till it broke so he could get it in a body bag.
Good popcorn.

Japanese, relatives/friends of the deceased, use large chopsticks to pick out the bones immediately after cremation. The bones are placed in order, starting from the feet to the skull.

we all are going to feel bad about the jokes when someone posts a true story about having to drag their loved one out and dump in the sea

Then there's the legend of the elderly couple doing a trans-atlantic when the main uphaul jammed and the wife winched hubby up to free it...
He clipped on at the top and proceeded to have a heart attack... she could not get him down as he was 'attached' to the masthead....
He stayed up there for 5 days till they got to St Lucia.....

Was I the only one that while reading this thread thought 'good laugh, never gonna happen to me', then started really thinking?

Can think of worse places to peg out.... like some hospital or crappy old folks home...
But then... if its on my boat I'll probably be solo so no worries...

I'd just set off the EPIRB and let whoever shows up deal with the body.
