From the picture, I say whomever committed the dearly departed had no idea what they were doing. You are supposed to open the plastic box and dump the ashes from the plastic bag inside which holds the cremains. No wonder the thing floated back on to the beach!
Oh well, Mrs. Jewell doesn't mind.
Here's another tip...dump the ashes on the downwind side of the boat or you'll catch a face full of your relative.
(Typically, junior enlisted have to learn this the hard way.)
