As part of my irregular “I Haven’t Seen It All” series, I came across this on Facebook today Fish for Eternity in a Jon Boat Casket: https://www.wideopenspaces.com/fish-for-eternity-in-a-jon-boat-casket/. I have seen a couple of people use a Jon Boat – https://www.pennlive.com/midstate/2014/01/motor_boat_funeral_for_mount_w.html, https://www.proptalk.com/outdoorsman-heads-grave-jon-boat, to carry a casket to the cemetery, but this is the first time I have seen it used as a casket. Not a Jon Boat, but an interesting send-off: Ben Madsen Casket ! Aboard Whirlpool Jet Boat: (about 7:19 minutes long) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQj-EaAZ4Do.
Here’s a YouTube video I found about the company Only in Arkansas: Glory Boats: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TK8QDgMKoso (around 1:46 minutes long) when I was looking for a different topic. Here are the company’s current Jon Boat casket choices: https://www.gloryboats.com/shop (fishing rods, duck decoys, and other items not included).
