I am down here on the Caribbean Island of St Croix, and it is likely I will croak here. I have requested that my earthly remains be buried at sea, and hope now to build a casket suitable, convenient and legal for the occasion.
I am thinking that such a box would have to have space included to hold concrete slabs that would counter the buoyancy of the wood, else I am liable to wash up on a beautiful beach and ruin a perfect holiday for someone.
Before I approach the local "Diggers", might someone enlighten me as to specs that should be considered?
I am presently figuring that a 2ft x 2ft x 6ft - 6" box should do it (It will find interim use as a storage box for the new "made-in-China" 10ft Christmas tree). I would pre-pour the concrete slabs, probably 20" x 20" x 2", and temporarily use them as stepping stones in the garden.
But all that is speculation. Anyone out there with real experience and information?
