If you're planning on going to such remote areas, I'd highly recommend getting Dacron sails, rather than more advanced laminates. The main reason for this is most laminates are not field reparable by the average sailor—dacron sails are—even with out a sewing machine.

I have plenty of time to learn this all myself, and most of it I will, but having such a wealth of knowledge at my finger tips is really helpful and i'm thankful to have it.
Myself, well I will without doubt (barring injury, death or disease) be traveling accross the pacific into and around Micronesia, Cook islands, Tonga, ect. I will look at the websites suggested and see what I can come up with.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
