You might consider hiring a delivery captain or having the boat transported via truck. If you go the route of delivery you could leave the delivery date open until late April so there will be time to wait for a good weather window. You might also be able to have the boat transported under the Delivery Co. insurance so that there is no worry about damage should there be a problem.
Remember, if the boat is new to you it is also unfamiliar in terms of it's sailing characteristics in offshore conditions.
