    This may be a strange and morbid question but here goes.
    We are doing a memorial and scattering of the ashes of my late and young Brother in Law tommorrow. What is the ettiquette for the crew of the vessel? Should I tip them or what? This seems really strange for me.
    Thanks in advance.

    Ran a few memorial trips..................That is up to you, the crew on these kind of trips are not expecting to go home with a pocket full of "side money". If they are respectful and considerate..............Why not???? They get paid next to nothing to do those kind of trips.

    I have worked one burial at sea and the last thought in my head was "i hope these people tip good". I did it because I was free that day and figured why not? I untied the boat, We sat up on the top deck and let the people do their thing, and then I tied the boat up. Not much work and I'd hope 100% of the crewmembers in SD won't expect much, if anything in side money..
