Cape Dory 28

Looking for some input from Cape Dory owners regarding blue water sailing.
They seem to be well regarded. Was wondering how they handle in big seas and rough weather.
Thanks

An older post but I'll reply anyway.

The Cape Dory 28 has circumnavigated. The 25D, essentially a shorter 28, has crossed oceans. These boats will go anywhere.

Interesting. Any more info on this circumnavigation?
CD28 is one of the boats on top of my wish list.

I have joined the site. I asked a question about my bowsprit. I'm in the process of replacing. I should really hurry.

I just bought my CD28. I haven't hit the one month anniversary yet.
