If you are tossing the engine, how do you propose to generate electricity - wind, solar? At a bare minimum you want nav lights. A VHF radio would be beneficial. Radar would be out of the question. Take at look at Lin and Larry Pardey's videos and books to see how to live without an engine.

Another good read - First Lady by Kat Cottee. She has a provision list you might find useful. She also documents the trials and tribulations of her 189 day voyage.
