I agree with all, and can empathize with DRFerron in the size thing. We sailing a bit in the Pacific in a 26 footer, and quickly decided that we wanted something bigger for our plans. I wouldn't do it in shorter than a 30, but personal preference plays a big role. If a 27 is big enough for your plans and you have properly modified her or you have a boat that is already blue water ready, go for it.
