I DO have a sense of adventure, which is why I DON'T ask for advice when I do something stu, er adventurous. If one asks for advice one is either looking to a) be talked into doing something, b) talked out of doing something, or c) looking for someone to point out trips and traps that one hadn't thought of yet , which leads to more questions aiming to answer either a) or b). By the answers the OP has given he wants answer a). If he can justify why, I just might agree with him.

Or we can just blindly encourage an unknown sailor with an unknown boat and an unknown skill level to attempt a journey well beyond his previous experience with a new-to-him boat across one of the busiest waterways on the east coast.

Oh yeah... with no motor. Which begs the question: if the iron jenny is dead, what is the condition of the rest of the systems on the boat?

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
