killarney_sailor is on a distinguished road
I don't think you appreciate the complexity and difficulty of the trip you are planning. There is a lot more to it than just buying the emergency equipment. Generally people undertake such a trip only with considerable experience and many months or years of boat prep.

I doubt you could even get a professional delivery crew to take on such an unprepared boat. An amateur agreeing to do so, would in my opinion, not be knowledgeable enough to complete the journey safely. Take your time and get some experience and prepare the boat properly.

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
