I need advice ..off shore or Intracoastal NJ to Florida

Hello ..
I am planning to take my 60 ft sailboat that is not rigged and no mast !!! under power from New Jersey to as far south as I can get .. My boat drafts about 8 ft . and is a twin engine .
I live in Oregon and have NO experience with the East Coast !!
I am at Hinkley Yacts Service in NJ and JUST got the notice that they are closing down the yard and I must get my boat out of the yard and gone in the next two months ... so, I do not have a lot options here ....
And as of yet I have no crew .. although I have a lot of experience in large motor boats and would be over ** confident *** in making this journey alone.
I will be looking for a DO IT YOURSELF yard some ware in the Southern states to finish her up.
So, back to my question .. can anyone give me some recommendations as to taking the Intracoastal or open seas .. In November, December !!! other than forget it ..
Thanks, Jaan
