Can We Rent a Sat Phone for Delivery ?

I am wondering if there is a company or individuals that will rent a Sat phone or a 4 man life raft for a delivery across the north Pacific? We are sailing our 40 ft sail boat from Palau in Micronesia to Hawaii through Micronesia this summer.

Thanks Sailtiaka

Re: Question can we rent a Sat phone for delivery

Lots of places rent sat phones -- here are three good ones I know about:

Satellite Phone Sales, Rentals - Outfitter Satellite Phones.

Satellite Phones & Airtime - Satellite Email - Marine Weather - Vessel Tracking | Global Marine Networks

The liferaft may be trickier due to shipping issues, but there are places from which you can rent a raft, too. The ones I know about are on the east coast of the US (e.g.
Life Raft and Survival Equipment: Life Rafts, EPIRBS, PFDs, Safety Equipment or Providing All Your Marine Safety Needs Commercial & Recreational Since 1962 ) so maybe not the most convenient for you, but I'm sure you could find raft rentals in the major boating areas on the west coast.

Thanks Catamount. I will check out the web sites you gave me. I will also contact the east coast companies regarding life rafts. They may give me a lead to a place on the West coast or better yet Hawaii.
