The N27, provided it is sound in terms of rigging, sails, engine, etc, should be able to make it up the WA coast to the San Juans in good weather. Shipping is no problem, the boat is smaller than others that make the same trip up and down I-5 every year.
Hopefully someone who is more active on this site than I can address my next item, and that is the Sailnet email lists. First of all, do they still exist? Reason I bring it up is when I owned my Newport 28 (my first boat), I gleaned most of my info off the Newport list. I see there are archived lists, but not sure what happened after July 08, which is the last message on the Newport archive.
Anyway, tpohara, try searching through the Newport email list archive. There was a very active group of owners, many of them 27 owners. You could mine a lot of great data there.
