bfloyd, there are lots of folk here who have already given you good advice. However, given your last statement, I want to revise my last suggestion. For now, drop the idea of a bluewater boat - they are expensive, often complex, and require experienced sailors. Go and buy a coastal cruiser, 30-32' - Tartan, Pearson, Catalina; just look around, buy a good one for perhaps $20K-$25K. Sail it, live on it, especially maintain it. In a year or two's time you will know if you want to spend $100k+ on a bluewater boat, and you will know what to look for.

Act now, buy something decent, and you answers will come to you.
