It is unwise to think that the boat will make six knots when you're motoring, since the tidal currents may have a significant impact on that... I don't know how strong the tidal currents are in that region, as I don't generally sail it much...
IMHO, motoring 10-12 hours a day is going to require a good autopilot or some crew. It will be pretty monotonous otherwise.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
