Having owned a GB 36 for 14 years I can tell you that running at 10 - 12 knots is an unnatural act for that boat. You'll be pushing a wall of water ahead of you, burning a ton of fuel and stressing your engines way above their comfortable load. If time is an issue you should fly/drive home and leave the boat someplace for pick up later. Trying to meet a schedule on a boat is a recipe for trouble.

I am not being negative, just realistic. Good luck.
