Guess I should have been more specific. I was referring to the original post about essentially having an underwater graveyard. I mean people walk through them on land all the time to visit their loved ones but it would seem odd to dive on it if you didn't know someone buried there.
Come to think of it, Firefish dove it and videotaped it for her. He posted it on this forum. It was odd cause there were no fish on it but there was a good sized octopus on it!

when i die i suspect it will cost a fortune to bury someone, so i have already informed my family that when i die if its not financially feesable to have me buried then im cool with mixing my ashes in a block of concrete and dropping me over the side of my favorite snapper hole.

My buddy Tony is in a pyramid out there in the gulf. I drop by to see him from time to time. They added a laser etched plaque of his picture on it before they deployed it. I think it is a "Florida Special" that David Walker builds.

I think it is a great way to honor a departed loved one!!
That would be the DJ Hooks reef that Capt.Paul Redman built.

That is very touching and I sincerely mean that, a great way to remember a good friend and feel close to him.

Here is the DJ HOOKS video.
I'd be glad to do the same for others....for free....of course I'd have to get to them when I'm diving nearby.

The sea will most likely be my final destination.....hopefully not too soon though!
