Undertaking Underway

Anyone ever sail a Sadler 39 alone wayyyyyyy offshore. Tips, tricks, hints from anyone appreciated as well.
I'm planning a 7 day haul about 600 miles off the Eastern Seaboard from The Caribbean to Eastern Canada and have a way biggin' to handle. Unsure as to doabilty safely.
Smaller vessel yup, but 39'er's taking some thought.

I'm sure it's doable if you are lucky and it is rigged right. Doesn't sound like much fun though. Why don't you just post for some crew? More fun, more sleep, less terror.

"Mobile mortary business" was actually a good read on the title. I should have finished it with a question mark....
pdqaltair - Thank you for the quote of inspiration
xort - Thanks for the giggle
davidpm - I'm thinking I may heed your advice.

Thanks all.....
