Do consider who you will be with - can they tow you a distance? Over 30miles from the middle, will they have enough fuel - what if it's rough...
Remember you are out of VHF range for over 1/3 of this trip.
Yhen you say "concerned" about breaking down do you mean you don't have trust in your engine, experience of unreliability or simply that this is your biggest concern. If the latter, fine, sensiable, but if you've any good reason to doubt the motor is up to it i'm not so sure it's a good idea.
Sorry to sound pessemestic - that trip Blue Ice and I made last year was fantastic, you'd have made it no trouble but Richard and I have come back in conditions you certianly would not have made it in!
