Taipan 28 - How well offshore?

I just saw the whole thread in which you indicate that this is a close relative of a Newell Cadet.I does not appear that this an exact sistership of the Cheoy Lee- Newell Cadet (AKA Offshore 27) but is very close. I am quite familar with the Cadet and based on my knowledge of the Newell Cadets this even more strongly reinforces my opinion of the numbers which is that these are pretty poor boats for offshore work. (Not all that great for coastal work either.)
