i spoke to tracy, randy's wife today.

she said its a great idea, and randy agreed.

and as for anyone who would be offended she said

verbatim

"randy agrees with me, anyone who would be offended by that isnt someone we want on the royal star"

I don't think anybody on this board will have a problem with what you're doing. B.havens said it perfectly. This is something that is very important to you and your family, and if somebody doesn't like it piss on them. I'm sorry to hear about your loss.

When Mel from the AllCoast board passed away, we took his ashes on the Qualifier to Aliejos during FF02.

We 32 good friends who had met on Allcoast over the years gathered on the stern at sunset.. 1 star was in the sky.. and scattered his ashes at the Rocks.

We had a ripper YFT bite the next day.. very beautiful , and where I would want to be left... and remembered.

Your doing the right thing ... and Glad Randy is so behind ya!!!

Again...sorry for your loss...but....this is EXACTLY how I want to go. Although I wasn't there to see it...I believe Dennis Bunker (founder of Smoooooth Drag) had his ashes scattered at I think I heard it was Guadalupe Is. I could be wrong about that. Dennis passed some years ago now.

I Know Randy, and although you havent posted it yet .. He will not have a problem with it.
Hope you and the family are doing well. God Speed on normalcy, but that should conclude after you trip. Pops would have been proud of you for you due duillagence.

im sure he wouldnt, he actually might be driving that trip even though he is just getting back from an 18 day 48 hours earlier.


randy is a top knotch human being. my dad often said that he will be happy if i turn out to be even half the person randy is.

Not only a stand up angler, but a stand up guy. I'm on that trip also and I say, Spread away mate', you'll have a lot of us sentimental old farts shedding a few tears of our own, remembering days spent with our late fathers. Glad to read Randy was all for it. What you are doing will only add to the
memories we will have from this trip. Good on ya'!

Sounds like your pops was a heck of a guy and you're actions are applauded by giving him the farewell he asked for. :)

God speed to your dad and as others have said, I would think a WFO bite will be in the cards....Put the screws to them bro and remember you're fishing for two on that trip if you know what I mean....

Sorry for you loss, so sorry... I am sure that he will be looking upon you and smiling with pride. Hell, I couldn't think of a better way to do it than that. Good for you, bro. Anyone who has a problem with that must have rocks in their head. Go for it !
