I am a little surprised. That's only about a 7000 mile passage. Maybe 60 days or less.

What kind of boat?
Its a 61 Bill Dixon Supercraft I bought 6yrs ago in Austraila If all worked out well in a perfect world its 6100 miles and at 9kts could be as fast as 23 days......But we know we dont live in a perfect world so I am thinking more like 30-32 days The only reason I am choosing a little more south before I get stuck in the middle is because the wave heights are considerably smaller and the wind speeds avg approx 10-25kts....I am more the relaxed slow type ...This path is at the bottom of all 3 w.w. and stream................RM
