Taipan 28 - How well offshore?

The PT actually has a little less keel ballast than the Taipan, I''m not sure why it matters whether it''s lead, concrete or feathers. Alex Baldwin''s Pearson Triton - very similar in specs to the Taipan - has done two circumnavigations, and the Taipan itself has done at least two Atlantic crossings, both documented here on Sailnet. Guess I''ll just have to take my chances out on the open water. But thanks for the information - I learned a lot through this conversation.
