It’s amazing. You know this man had awesome friends.
Every day I think about how to live my life, and what impact I will leave on this Earth.
I would hope to make a positive one, one so strong that people go out of their way to make a badass memorial for me.
Something that is thoughtful, and from the heart.
Well, apparently that is what happened for one man.
Jeff Gregory of Tavernier, Florida came across this boat that had been set adrift in the sea.
Upon closer inspection, he discovered these things:
Look closer, and it’s obvious this is not a real boat, but a replica, and it’s a memorial for someone special.
The man in the picture is Captain Billy Whitney.
He was a reputable fishing guide out of Hawks Kay in the beautiful Florida Keys.
This is him in his actual boat, the Soc-et-tu-em, fishing the flats.
I think it’s safe to say he was loved, and one helluva inshore fishing guide.
We should all live our lives so fully that our friends do something like this for us.
Tight lines, y’all.
Devin is the founder of Louisiana Fishing Blog and enjoys exploring new fishing spots on Louisiana's coast. He prefers using artificial lures and casting tackle, but won't hesitate to break out a popping cork when the time is right.
