This is not an easy sail, across the Gulf of Maine.... Don't do it with an untested boat.
Try some overnighters, make sure everything functions as needed... Ripping a sail or losing a mast would immediately place you in a survival situation. Would you have enough gas for the engine to get you back? Bring good oars, then... and enough food and water to float around for weeks...
My advise, test the boat and yourself first and have an exit strategy....
