Most any professional skipper will require that you have a liferaft on board.
They cost some significant percentage of what a charter costs.
I don't remember if you have one or not. If you do have one they have to be repacked and serviced every couple of years or so.

There are a lot of those guys that are regulars on this forum so they will chime in with their gear requirements.
Guatemala is a much shorter flight from Miami.

Let me know where you put her when you get down there.


Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
