Vic to tassie - anyone here done it?

I've long held fantasies about paddling/peddling from Wilsons Prom to Tasmania. Now that I've spent a bit of time with the Hobie Sport and seen what I'm capable of doing in it (done 2 x 30+km days in a row a couple of times with relative ease), I'm giving serious thought to making a Hobie Adventure my next yak and actually doing it. I've plotted a basic course using google earth and it doesn't appear to be as difficult as I originally thought it might be.

Now I know google earth isn't giving me the real picture, but I also know people have paddled it before. So if it can be paddled, I'm certain it can be peddled/paddled with greater ease. So I'm wondering if anyone here has done it before, and if so, what advice would you have for me?

As much as I'd like to do it my skinny little arms I don't think would make it :D I often think of how much fun it would in a yak amongst a huge swell having done some ocean sailing in the past. But something tells me it would be too much fun in a yak in a 20 - 30 foot swell in bass strait or maybe it would providing it wasn't a breaking swell???

I think if i were a young and not married I'd love to attempt it with adequate support of course.
