Challenge: Solo Four-Month Trip - Spring 2011

Hello forum, i am planning to sail for 4 months, starting in april. Still no rute decided yet neither exact dates, but i wanted tonget my adventure started by posting here an thread to get opinions for two things

1. I need to rent a monohull, 32 to 39ft, in good conditions and for a great price. I have not checked yet with big charter companies for a " long rent" i still wonder if i will get a better deal from someone currently triying to sell a boat, by renting it for a couple of months...any thoughts?

2. Initial sailing area will be the carib (windward islands) where i have been sailing the last 3 yrs. Since it is going to be a long sailing period i wanted to open the debate on 3 non obvious things you believe esential to have in the boat for such a trip.

A toda vela!!
