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.

Back in the water in Grenada - with new main and #2 and cockpit canvas (Santa came early). Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
