I'd probably skip the radar on the west coast unless the budget allows, and the ssb and sat phone as well. I'd add an epirb though. A liferaft is a personal choice and I don't believe it is required unless you are racing offshore. At today's gps prices a good one with a spare for sure. I'd skip the chart plotter unless the budget allowed - you need the paper charts anyway. I agree on the propane - away from US and Canada it's the fuel of choice and very convenient.
