Re: Norfolk, VA to Boston delivery

Builder/dealer will shakedown boat before my arrival. Will spend first day turning everything on/off during a daysail. That way failures dealt with by installors even if trip postponed. Then I was thinking of coastal for first 24-36h of cruise then offshore. I've done 5-10d trips offshore. She has been ~24h offshore. ? Can you suggest hybrid route plan?. Want to allow at least 3-4 d "downtime" inside our 10d window to allow for picking weather window so ideally keep trip no longer than 4-5d. Boat easily driven to hull speed of 8.38kts.
