Welcome to the search. Try doing a forum search of "bluewater." I tried to post a link, but haven't chattered enough to qualify.

There is another link for best books. I have the books you've listed, but you may also want to check out the 2nd edition of Beth Leonard's "The Voyager's Handbook." She wrote the first edition after completing a circumnavigation in a modified keel ketch (Shannon), but the 2nd edition is after they have been cruising in a steel-hull fin keel cutter, so it has a good bit of insight into the advantages/disadvantages of various arrangements.

I am still in my search for the boat, so I can't offer much assistance beyond offering resources I've been using.

Good luck!
