We faced the same situation last spring buying a boat in New England and needing to get it to Baltimore. We decided to shake her down for 12 days in New England. This was a great confidence builder giving time to learn the boat, fuel consumption, electrical systems, radar operation, and etceteras. I gave up trying to make the inside route work and decided being close to the Jersey shoreline was a false sense of security so we went Montauk Point to Cape May direct. In the end I swear we could see the bright Atlantic City the entire trip anyway. We rode the tide all the way up the Delaware Bay and through the canal. That was one of the best voyages I had all summer actually.

Think very carefully about cold exposure in April.

Thanks all for the great insight. I will be taking it all in over the next month or two as I decide best way to bring her home. We are also considering having the boat shipped via land to get her to Annapolis earlier. I am having a new paint job done on the hull and want it completed, as well as any other work that needs to be done, before the season kicks in. Thoughts on that option are welcome as well. I hate options.

If the financial cost of trucking the boat is not prohibitive for you, it's almost always the best way to go to keep a schedule of any kind.

Is the painting and other work being done in Annapolis or Newport?

not sure if I will have her painted up in Newport, or at home. Mostly depends on timing for bringing her down. At this point, I am thinking of completing the survey this week; if all goes well, close the deal next week; have her painted where she is (very reputable yard) over the next six weeks; once we get into April, bring her home. Thanks again for all of the input.
