If it is prepared correctly, and most important, IF THE CAPTAIN
IS PREPARED, it can be done nicely, but without a lot of creature comforts. Many under 30 foot boats have gone on long cruises, but the person/people onboard make the difference. I am sure there are stories of what the ocean can toss at it, but it has much more to do with what the crew can deal with and still come up smiling. Remember that Tahiti
looks the same from the porthole of a 27 footer as it does from the porthole of a 50 footer. Anybody that says you cant cruise
in a 27 footer is full of horse pucky, but anybody that says it will always be comfortable is also full of it. Live the dream. ______Grant.
