    Joel Schmidt sat bedside while his father rested in a hospital bed, recovering from a horrific fall off a ladder. At the time, the Little Rock, Arkansas resident was unsure if his then-74-year-old father would make it.

    裘依.施密特坐在從梯子上重跌下來、如今躺在醫院病床上休養的父親身邊。當時,這名家住阿肯色州小岩城的男子,不確定那時74歲的老爸能否撐下來。

    Schmidt was reminded of decades earlier, when his father would rush into his room in the early morning, prying him out of bed to have breakfast and get a move on to go fishing. Schmidt said that to this day, the activity "never gets old."

    施密特想起數十年前,他老爸會一大早衝進他房間,把他從床上挖起來吃早飯,然後趕忙出門去釣魚。施密特說,釣魚這個活動至今仍令父子倆樂此不疲。

    As Schmidt sat beside his ailing father, he joked about his father’s burial to lighten the mood.

    坐在重傷的父親身旁,施密特拿父親的安葬方式開玩笑來緩解一下氣氛。

    "If you hadn’t told me what you wanted, I might have just buried you in your fishing boat," he said.

    「你要是不告訴我你想怎麼樣(被安葬),我就把你放在你的漁船裡埋了。」

    That’s when the idea for Schmidt’s creation came about - caskets that appear to be miniature fishing boats. His company, Glory Boats, makes customized caskets for those who love the outdoors and reeling in some fish.

    施密特的創作點子就從這兒來的——看似迷你版漁船的棺材。他的公司「光輝船」為那些熱愛戶外活動與捲線釣魚的人打造訂製棺材。
