It's a mono, oh dear. But your a sailor so welcome.
Crew seems to be a battle between the cost to the crew and the cost to you. If your not comfortable with the boat yet then take on weekend crew to work
her up to what really is a longish crossing. Find the faults with spare hands aboard, and a couple of old timers that understand engines, etc. before you do the trip.
That shouldn't be too difficult if you have the time to spend a month away from home.
Otherwise take on a delivery skipper
and check his rates against getting it 'carried' home as deck
cargo. If he doesn't want a 'opt out' in case he doesn't think the boats up to it then that's a good indicator. Have you seen the boat yourself?
