The standards have changed since 1895.

Tons of much smaller boats have done these types of crossings.

The question is do you have the skills to make this type of crossing and is the boat well founded for it. Pacific Seacraft are well made boats but if you have 30 year old rigging it might not survive a crossing if you hit rough weather.
