Sail smart, watch the weather, maintain your boat, and you'll be fine. Friends of friends growing up in Seattle made the trip to Ketchikan and back one summer in a 17 foot Boston Whaler - they were tough kids and of course Whalers are "unsinkable" but you get the picture. I made this passage aboard a much larger cruiser with a very experienced captain and strong crew - the biggest problem was long watches in the rain.
