Need advice on Maine to Bermuda Run.

Living on the northside of St. Thomas, watching the whales, dropping down over the mountain to work every morning. Got driven out of New England by my personal perception of the impending economy. Might as well be warm and broke. Can always fly back and touch snow as opposed to the other way around. Besides, no Bomba Shack in Maine. The reason I said I''m time-limited is that I figure I can run to Bermuda in less than 8 days, worst case scenario, then south from there in another couple weeks, as opposed to dicking around down the ICW and another 3 weeks in the Bahamas. I didn''t consider a fall trip based on the North Atlantic pilot charts - May is the best. I''m not interested in taking any HUGE risks, and, once underway, time is relative - that''s why I said "bang a right" if necessary after a couple days out of SW Harbor. Dammit. I''m convincing myself otherwise. I want my damn boat....
