It depends on a lot of variables. One of the biggest factors is the design of the boat, even more so than length. So while you may have a "28 foot" boat, some boats of that length are built to cross oceans and weather high wind and sea states, while others are intended strictly for light-duty coastal and protected waters.
If your boat is the latter variety, then you will need to experiment to see what kind of conditions it can handle comfortably. I wouldn't suggest experiment in severe weather, but rather work up into moderate conditions and see how it handles them. Also, speak with other owners and get their advice.
In general, 4-5 foot seas should be manageable, but if they are tightly spaced (as is often the case at the beginning of a blow, especially in shallower waters), even seas of this size can be a challenge.
