Definitely environmental laws.
You can't just flare up your boat (or car for that matter), or get rid of it by depositing it on the lake floor.
Stand-up paddle board? (Or in this case, lying down, very still).

Or for those who prefer to take their chances on an impromptu, lithium fired, road side cremation there are options such as this: https://www.electrichearse.co.uk/veh...ectric-hearse/

So I have some difficulty in imagining what sort of "preprocessing" could be involved to reduce say a 100kg corpse to a pile of soil that could be ready for collection by the relatives in just one month.
.
I could imagine something like a shredder. The ones they use to mulch trees and branches...
T would solve a lot of problems.

In the UK we lived near a Natural Burial Ground - you buy a plot and are buried (not incinerated as not nature friendly(ecological at all)- in a cardboard, simple wood, or wicker coffins (I fancy bringing one back on the roof of the car next time we go!) - and then you plant ONE NATIVE tree on top- no flowers or reefs
not even coral? We have loads o the stuff we've brought back from holidays . .
at least 1 characters.

Then you could mulch your garden with your in-laws.
