Regarding the speed of a boat: There are a lot of sailors who have made huge passages on small boats. However, the longer you are on a passage, the longer you are exposed to being hit with a severe storm. Suppose your weather forecast is accurate out to 5 days. If you were on a 9 day passage on your slow boat vs a 7 day passage on a faster boat, you will be sailing in unknown weather for twice as long.
