Two term as it short and light bulb went off but it went to these hospitals and we became provider of choice for an agency it’s only 95 dollar repair. It’s the same. That dignity equality human would and we put a document everything that gimmick and commodity like. And that’s a different program that money can squeeze different vessel but I’m a huge pet lover and it’s pretty special because of that you know what happens which can we go out and did my pet issues scanners are rations in we will have a horse farm and so. In disease in the pac which used up all the ups and he still. So what happens weak oil we gather the alien vessel we give a safety brief we travel three miles two team which is the requirement by the US Coast Guard in the EPA. In depth we have an icy tribute they can include reading this music. And then definitely take turns scatter in the premier remains of their human love when there were together. That’s too where it was a black couple days on Miami and we did mom and dad and for your keys and know how many people can you hit on a boat to actually go out forties but that’s a good question because every place about size of one to six passengers that’s called a six pack or more than six passengers of what you have to have a master’s license which. And our boat sizes can take anywhere for passengers with an offense with 300 foreign people but the average is 20/20 five people open bar. Open bar if you choose that option if the vote that’s an unrealized picnic and that I want it to be a party. Well most people celebrate and if the vote has ever licenses BWAY OP and we do have catering available. We help folks with the travel arrangements with hotels and in to order shortly reservist. And that. One called really does at all. When we’re on the vessel eagle out and we takes a turn scattered remains. And then eight to a flower pedal feel which is beautiful. We fire up the ship’s cannon in the air honor them in and we raised this version flag which are seals cutesy but it’s called the eight Belle and to watch slack. Because they’re four watches on a boat. In the navy. The last watched her in the island war so because daddy as. Left our deck of life we hang expert flag we ring Plymouth plantation schoolhouse spell eight times in that we give this flag. To the family on December occasion and that we circled the area fire up the ship’s Canon. Yet it can we have a candidate many people to post. And many people might throw shells and with messages on them more to add loved Oreo suddenly throws an Oreo peanut bag pipes from what I’ve got somebody wants bag we have some incredible backpackers. Our fellow David out of Plymouth bag pipes he has brother Beck by the queen of England and then I George up in New Hampshire and Maine bag pipes for the pushes. In these guys are amazing Lee. A talented they have like 12100 tunes and an end. And I just say hit it in Google wanted to do a great job now a couple of couple is there’s one note you can do Blake’s I’m guessing the answers no. Well the answer is that correct it’s no but let me keep you kind of two to answer that we only can do. Three miles east of the line of demarcation. On each coast we cannot Two Rivers lakes and streams the reason for that is because cremated remains contained 52% phosphate. Phosphate is like when you put whisked in your laundry and that creates red tide which creates algae bloom which jokes that rivers lakes streams can. However. Two years ago at Babson College. A proud to say that we developed a product called the ocean earned that will allow you to leave the planet with fewer footprints that you came. Zero. Phosphate. Permissions set to be working on their right now and make that a Massachusetts it’s gonna ever rate retail price of just 99 dollars. End. It’s gonna be branded so that it’s like Coco Chanel or camouflage are already people want so the other thing I tell you about scattering exe you don’t meet governor. Catholics. Like to have a current elected capture all the commitments together so we have the oceans premiers if necessary. Or if I want it the other thing we do with this is just small size they care man we have these underwater re called the great burial re these are 600 plans. Can withstand eight. Force four hurricane and working in the approvals now with the state of Massachusetts fisheries to deploy these. South. Heart to port in the arm port to create structure re straight structure fish like structure. So what happens is the top of screws secure chambers the year mom and dad’s cremated remains coincide we deploy this in three short months this becomes a living reef. With with which we have. Helped and mosques in politics is only the little wherever you live forever and cost D’Qwell you can also visit grip is read by scuba diving and invite fishing yet. Gosh let’s talk as we getting number questioned them and regarding cost of this service OK so for it it’s very reasonable orchard actually about 13 the price of a traditional funeral service and you know people die a year by the new 3.3 million about 56000 people die in Massachusetts per year. There’s 24000. Homes in America we’re not a funeral home. We worked with the number that we train them and with the C browser application process is less expensive less expensive and traditional soap for an unattended which means we do everything we just describe and put it document it’s only 495 dollars. Four years six passenger questioned jackets tortilla it’s 15150 dollars. In the average is anywhere from 22 to 32 all depending upon a fit and finish the vessel with got a beautiful presidential style got him Boston. Of course that’s more money we have one of those we actually use Honey Fitz. Out of Palm Beach now and that’s. Had five presents users that we have different types of vessels. Full body burials little bit different because we have to go to 600 feet which is 45 miles short in Massachusetts how to people get in touch with you because I know what’s happening here people are listening in the sand. I wanna do this. How do we make the link to what we have a really good depth free information kidded DVD it’s available.
