I'd probably rather set off from Falmouth Hugh, which might suit you. It's about another 45min from Fal to Penzance, but it saves a lot of hassle. Loads of guys go from here. It's a nice run around the Lizard and St. Micheals Mount.

Avoid the A30 at Bodmin at all costs! They're building the bypass (at bloody last! ).
It's chaos and will be worse by then. I'd go Plymouth and fork off at Dobwalls.

If you do come down the A30 Ive marked in the two main bottle necks.

Now I dont know about the temple route as Ive never used it but it looks good to me on the map.

The Bodmin one Ive used quite a bit, it does get a little narrow in places but no worse than the run down to Mylor Harbour.

Ive marked the back road in Red and the potential queue in red dots

Up to you...

It's miles of cart track. I'd avoid it with a boat on the back.
