I don't know what the yield would be on zombie ocular fluid. I would suggest a still be used to ensure the safety of the liquid. It worked for urine in Waterworld, so why not?
I'm thinking the zombie might be very game'y... So you would need a very potent marinade or perhaps smoked zombie would be better!!! You could always salt it and keep it in the bilge - zombie BACON!!! That would ROCK!

To get my palate in shape for this adventure i'm going to smoke some carp and drink warm beer. The cheaper the beer the better i'd say. The older the carp and strictly eat the mud vein only!

That's ridiculous. Armies have faced plenty of enemies that were just like that, to a close approximation.

And, they used to be us. So when fighting them, some of our losses turn into zombies, and we are faced with the horrifying dilemma of whether or not to put them out of their misery before they turn into more enemy.
Yeah, we'd be faced with that decision just long enough for everybody who worries about that question to be weeded out of our army.

Quote:
In World War Z, zombies could not swim, but they could walk the Ocean Floor. So droves of them would just show up on beaches and climb anchor lines.
That's ridiculous, too. Humans are less dense than water, especially sea water, and only get less dense after death. Also have you ever tried walking on the ocean floor? Zombies would be worse than "shamblers" at this. And climbing up the anchor line is really not a concern. Everybody knows the best place to deal with zombies is at a bottleneck, which will bring me to my last point.

All of this talk about various guns to be used against zombies is, with all due respect, myopic at best. Facing zombies with guns the question you have to ask yourself is, "Will it jam before it runs out of bullets?"

Proper zombie defense preparation includes edged-weapon training. I presume all sailors will still keep a full-time watch, even at anchor, and nothing passes the time like hacking off the arms of zombies as they try to climb up your anchor rode.

Though I guess for full disclosure I should reveal that I'm a swordfighting instructor

Exactly, guns attract too much attention! A sword or blunt object is all that's needed. I'm thinking a baseball bat with conch shells fixed to it... Bashing some zombies while Buffet is playing! Now that's paradise!
