Looking for advise..

I am a new member and new boat owner of a Pro-line 26 walk around with a Mercury 250 Efi outboard. I purchased the boat in Florida and plan to cruise to Key West. I live in the Caribbean coast of Mexico and need to get the boat from Key West to Cancun/ or Isla Muejeres. I have many questions:
1-Am I crazy to think the boat is big enough to cruise to Mexico.
2-I know I will need extra fuel.. Rhumline 400 miles/ probably 500miles
actual.
3-Will need a captain...any suggestions
4-What would be the cost of the captain and where should I look for one.
5-I plan to go along.
6-Where do I get the best information about crossing the Yucatan channel
particularly regarding the currents and weather.
Any feed back would be greatly appreciated, in part or in whole.
