Salem to Buzzards Bay

I'm sailing from Salem to Buzzards Bay shoving off July 20. Trying to figure out the timing on the first leg to get through the Cape Cod canal. Can anyone give me a sense of how long I should allow to get to the canal. Also am I better to overnight in P Town or around the mouth of the canal or can I get through in one long haul? I'm happy to sail overnight.

Any other advice would be welcome. I'm sailing an Allied Luders 33 (hull speed 7 knots on a good day) that is new to me. I'll have one able bodied but green crew.
