Remember, if you do choose to burn this smaller version this is a natural process with wood, fire and water so we can’t predict accurately: how long the boat will burn for; the amount of it will take; and impact of the weather and water. The calmer the water is the longer it will stay afloat. The amount of ashes you use is up to you, but the boat will need to sit comfortably in the water and as it is a lot smaller than the full size version it will need calm conditions.
What others say:
As Charles Cowling author of the Good Funeral Guide puts it about the Viking send off: “It is spectacular. The flames rise to the heavens as the wind fills the longboat’s sails and it journeys. There is compelling emotional and spiritual appeal in this imagery, of journeying, transition, transfiguration and consummation. The spirit rises as the craft moves over the face of the waters; that which is earthly is subsumed by the sea. All the elements are present: earth, air, fire, water. And there is an inexorable dynamic.”
