Absolutely it can be done. Do you really want to spend your time making progress, and then return home? I myself would enjoy this, but it isn't for everyone. Read the THORNLESS PASSAGE, and you will get tons of information that will answer your question.
Why not leave the boat in your desired destination, or maybe south Florida? We leave northern Florida before a northern storm. We manage 450 miles in 48 -+ hours to drop the hook in Miami. Then of course there is always going offshore to 65 longitude, and turning south...............i2f
