Tartan 27 or Tartan 30

We sail the same waters as I will have my 24' in the sound this summer as I look for a 27-30' boat. What changed my dream for an off shore boat was going on a delivery of a 40' from the sound to Astoria over Memorial weekend. It was rougher than I had dreamed and even though the weather could have been much worse it wasn't just a little more intense than the sound... It was the way more intense and it cured me of PNW offshore dreams. I'm going to do the sound and then head up north to the inside passage next year. Off shore in Washington/Oregon makes the Caribbean seem like kindergarten. We arguably have some of the best summer sailing in the country here in protected waters but with the intense tides and roughed shorelines I think wise Washington sailers first use an airplane before getting on the boat to enjoy blue water
