Colvic Watson: Atlantic or local fishing?

Hi, with respect to everyone!
I have Colvic Watson 28'6 as my sailing partner. Do anyone can answer how my Atlantic Circuit sailing ambitions looks like: dream or real think?
Technical information with stability data, construction strenght and handling tips are not very popular in magasines articles. Boat is cutter rigged with most chandlery bits fitted.

Hi Prohor...
Well your best bet is set out according to plan... if you have one yet.... cross the Biscay... If your nerve is up to continueing head for the Algarve, etc, etc...
The Colvic Watson is a strong boat and if you pick the right times for your crossings you'll be ok... its more likely to be the case... can you answer your trans-atlantic circuit ambitions.... as for the boat... no matter what you have someone will look at it... suck in their breath, shake the head and say"Tut,Tut,Tut, eee lad... I would'nt take that in ma bath tub"
Happy Sails...
