If I had a 20nm over-water crossing and I was flying a 206L without floats I'd always climb to 10,000' thinking if the donk quit half-way I'd be able to make it to one shore or the other (using the best wind option of course). You "should" be able to go 10nm from that height if you bleed the RRRM back and keep the speed up, assisted by any tail wind in your favor.
