Is this casket creepy or cool to honor the outdoors person in their afterlife?

CBS shares that there's a company in Arkansas that makes specialty caskets for those that love the outdoors and fishing.

The company, Glory Boats, makes caskets in the shape of fishing boats. "The boats, listed at $2,800, come in three different colors: Woodland camo, marsh grass and pink camo."

Their company slogan is "Celebrating the lives of outdoorsmen" and it seems to have struck a cord with many.

Although the company is relatively small and barely a year old they say that the summer months have proven to be the busiest for them. They've been "receiving inquiries from people across the United States."

Oh and if you're wondering if this style of casket is acceptable for funerals and burials, they are.

According to their website: Glory Boats are "used in funeral services the same way as traditional caskets Glory Boats are compatible with standard burial vaults. The internal dimensions of a Glory Boat allow even the largest individuals to easily fit. The inside of a Glory Boat is softer and more comfortable than traditional caskets. The outside of a Glory Boat is rugged and tough like many of the outdoors enthusiasts who loved spending time on the water in their lives."

So what do you think?
