Attention you hungry live aboards. This is a hell of a business opportunity. You do not need a license to pick up a body or dispose at sea. About all you need is some water tight wood crates, a truck, an arrangement with a local crabber and an ice supply. A $1200 fee matches cremation and ought to be at least 50% profit. I say crabber because a hoist is important to handle a crate containing a body, sand for weight and ice- say 3-400 lbs. I know many crabbers who would jump at the chance to make $200 for a 2 hour night job including 20 miles of gas.
Glad I read that all the way through to the end. When I got to "an arrangement with a local crabber" I envisioned a slightly different scenario.

I am perfectly fine with the circle of life, but I don't want to partake of that particular part of the cycle.

The crabs can eat me, literally or figuratively, but I really don't want to eat the crab after it ate what was in the wood box.

I have an agreement with The Shark Guild. I don't eat them if they don't eat me. Real simple. For many decades this contract has been kept by both sides. However, I have partaken of my share of craps and shrimp so it is only fair if I return the favor. Hopefully, they would have to get through the wood box first.

Later,
Dan

I doubt I can have a long ship and a pyre? Probably have to think the kids will send my ashes on a ebbing tide.
