Make sure you get a passport. Other countries get cranky when you row a raft ashore from your boat without documents.
It almost sounds like your plan is to sail out 300 miles, and hang out til the groceries are gone- and then sail back not quite 300 miles to row ashore to get more groceries.
Lots of bugs in bird seed- you'll want to be sure not to infest your own boat with ants roaches beetles etc. you'll never see the end of it.
