The big problem as I see it is you are talking about ocean travel in the higher latitudes. You will get hammerd there is no doubt about it, and to spend a week or weeks pushing through a sea way a light weight production boat will not be fun (not that is ever is) and the odds of sustaining structual damage is very real.
That said, I would seriously consider the C36 capable of a Pacific crossing with the trades at the right time of the year with some basic modifications not rushing or working to a strict timetable. Hey I may just do it myself.
