You can rename a boat if you follow the proper de-naming and re-naming ceremony. You must also make the proper offerings to the gods.

I guess that my take on the ashes is that (other than it being more than a little creepy) it isn't his boat anymore (you paid his estate - right?), so you have the option of keeping him aboard as your guest, or not. If not, I would either offer the ashes to his daughter or sail the boat out and perform an internment at sea. Otherwise, you may have issues with his spirit not liking how you sail, where you go, or the upgrades that you perform, etc...

Welcome to Sailnet, and Congrats on the O'day 39. That's a REALLY nice boat.
