I would very much appreciate corresponding (here or email) with anyone/everyone experienced in single-handed sailing in the Caribbean.
This sounds like a great plan if all your ducks are in row. Like money and mail..single handing in the Caribbean is so doable especially if your are not in a rush. Sail down to Guyana. You will meet a nice Lady there that likes boats and you will no longer be single-handing. Better scrap that plan. You want to single hand so only sail into ports with large cruise ships. Navigation and weather is predictable. Buy a wind vane and SSB
with pastor. You can get some info as you go.. good luck Mate!
