Gorilla is on a distinguished road
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.
