Question Catalina crossing on 8 hp 2 stroke dinghy?

Hey guys! Im 16 years old and have been day dreaming about doing the channel crossing on my 8 hp 2 stroke engine this summer with my friend. Obviously I will have to leave at 4 am, and when its dead flat, any other tips, advice or encouragement? How much gas do you guys think I should bring? Obviously just doing it for kicks. I figure worst case scenario I can call my friend or the coast guard to come pick me up if worst goes to worst. And by the way, the engine is like from 1990's and has broken down a million times, but I have taken that thing apart so many times at sea, something would have to go drastically wrong for me to not be able to fix it.
