That is a route that has wrecked many a boat captained and crewed by able and knowledgeable sailors. The Straights of Mackinac are not to be taken lightly. Hire a captain and treat it as a training exercise.
Another option is to ship it, even with stepping the mast and travel lift fees you could probably get it moved for under $1500.00. As an example it cost me $700.00 to ship my M27 150 miles in Michigan a couple years ago.
