How long do dead bodies float for?
« on: 07 February, 2016, 08:10:00 PM »

As I was idly thinking in a morbid moment earlier today...Why don't shipwreck victims simply make a life raft out of the dead bodies instead of drowning?

How long would a life raft made of corpses last for? Is it a practical life-saving idea?
