Hi Mel:
The ceramic reefs are someplace in the south Pacific. The project I want to do will be in Belize. I have seen the reef balls sitting on the beach in a couple of places and wondered if any had been sunk. Now I know. I can't wait until I get back! (Sept. 22nd is the magic date)

no idea if the bill was ever settled? Also no need really to build reef balls, less you're looking for a good project... rocks are readily available (from the lagoon side) and last I checked, sink just as well as cement.

I read an interesting and strange article a while back..... It was about artificial reefs, but had a unique twist. For those who love the ocean, and the reefs, there is a business that will take your cremated remains and mix them into the cement they use to make artifical reef sites. Your name is engraved on the "reef" and it is taken to a fragile reef area and sunk. You will have sea creature visitors indefinately.... Weird huh??? What do you all think of this??????

The mafia has been practicing this art for a number of years, and you don't even have to tbe dead.

The idea is interesting, however, after cremation I intend to have my ashes scattered over the surface of one of the seven seas for maximum dipersion.

If I choose to mix my ashes with anything, it will be best enjoyed in a bong.
