I think you will find the answers to many of your questions (and many you have not even thought of) in a book by Beth Leonard, "The Voyager''s Handbook." No matter how patient and helpful the folks on this board are, it''s quite a lot to say in a typed message.
I will be the first to wish you fair winds and good luck in your sailing days ahead. If it''s your dream, keep moving forward to it!
