Hey Crazy, Welcome!
I did almost the same thing, I bought a Contest 33 off ebay last fall and will be sailing it back to Canada in 2 months. I did take my ASA 101,103 & 104 courses and feel comfortable with my boat in the Cheasapeak, Deleware, Hudson, Erie Canal and Lake Ontario. I am NOT looking forward to the Atlantic...
Just have a plan, a backup plan and a list of emergency marina's and you will be fine. I head down to do my refit and launch in 21 day. Then back to Canada for 2 weeks, then the big trip starts in early May.
Can I ask, what is your disability? Sailing comes with it's mental and physical challenges, some days more and rum days none.
