Our first design was introduced in September 2007 to a warm reception. The beginnings of the concept was in the form of an answer to the deceased family's wished to have a ceremony at sea in a format that was not on the market. They wanted something more than just pouring out the ashes on the water, for that is where Ken would want to be. Being raised on the water, they could not imagine not being scattered anywhere else, but they could not find a "boat to burn" Salt water in the blood is a strong thing, demanding the extra pursuit. We too have been around the ocean most all of our lives. Salt runs deep, so we undertook the request for a Viking style funeral, a burning pyre. Anything for our Ken, no common pouring of ashes for him.
We know of no other mini-dinghy urn anywhere for use in ocean scattering ceremonies, certainly none with this degree of thought in design and use. We have created a product we will be proud to use ourselves, and we are confident you will appreciate it as well. We can't imagine a mariner funeral service anywhere that would not be richly enhanced with our little ocean scattering urn.
We invite you to further investigate.
