I think that the depth of your keel is not the most important consideration when planning a passage like that.

A rough interpretation of Willk and Bernís comments - if I can be blunt - if you need to ask for help in passage planning you probably arenít YET competent enough to execute it, especially if anything goes awry midway. I can think of places Iíd rather be making my learning mistakes.
