A friend of my son just did what you are talking about. Bought a boat in Florida, sailed around the Bahamas for awhile and then took it through the canal and home to Oz. I don't think he had a lot of experience but did the research and had a smooth trip. Hope all goes as well for you, sounds like fun.
