    Default Buriel at Sea

    I was in Lymington last week when I saw this Azi 42 carrying a union draped coffin. Apparently there is a designated 'burial' site out near the Needles that is closed for fishing/dredging etc.

    No idea who he/she was but it was a very poignant moment.

    Burials at sea, particularly the area marked as "dumping ground" off the Needles, requires a Licence.

    Well I was going to say that it must be the remains of the Tory party in that box but just did a quick google and turned up this http://www.burialsatsea.co.uk/

    It seems that the owner of the AZ42 has made a commercial business out of this Anyone we know on this forum?

    I think there have been a couple of incidents of bodies washing ashore in Christchurch and Poole bays, alledgedly after being buried at sea....

    I have been asked to skipper a “scattering of ashes at sea” on Saturday for a distant relative.
    I’d really appreciate it if the jetskiers gave our wake a miss this time.
    A boat full of people all dressed in black should be a good clue

    We’ve scattered some of the ashes of our dog at sea. It was moving and brought a tear to my eye

    There's a designated area for burials at sea off Newhaven as well.
