It's gonna be cheaper, cash out of pocket, to sail her, but when you account for any hidden costs (lost time from work, provisioning, unforseen circumstances) it may be more expensive... but it may also save you money by allowing for a relatively sedate shakedown cruise- if your diesel packs it in because of a bad filter or an old halyard breaks, better for it to happen inshore than offshore, and you'll get the bugs ironed out before hitting the gulf.
