Willy...I think you need a better sea boat...like the cape dory's...not necessarily bigger...for the trip you are planning. Unlike the East Coast there is nowhere to duck in on your section of coast when the weather gets nasty AND you will be battling currents against you.
Another thought is to buy your boat in CAL and avoid the worst of the trip that way...get used to the boat at sea on the way to Mex and then make your "ocean" decisions from there. It is easier sailing TO oregon than from Oregon!
