I want to donate my organs after death, or for science if they're no good. I don't want there to be enough of my body left to burn/ bury.

I don't actually care what they do to my body after I die, as long as they don't give me a Christian burial. It seems to be the norm even among non-religious for some reason. But the boat thing would be ideal, albeit a tad unrealistic.

It would probably be cheaper to burn you on a long boat than to bury you like everyone else.

I think the issue is more that there might be laws against launching a burning boat carrying a corpse... maybe.

Unless it's international waters.
If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

And who would build a viking longboat just to burn it up?

Having to get to international waters kind of kills the cost-effectiveness don't you think?

Just let me get some 2x4s and a hatchet. I'm sure I could make you some sort of boat-ish thing to burn on.

That shit's hard to build.  Why not use one of the ships in the viking ship museum in Oslo?

You could ask them politely, but they would still say no.

Maybe they could just green screen your funeral and then just quietly turn you into electricity when no one is looking?
