To find out what you are getting into, look at Beth A. Leonard's The Voyager's Handbook, 575 pages that are 8 1/2 by 11 inches in size of rather small print with lots of pictures and tables. This book is well written and researched and covers just about everything in boats the size you are considering. The first chapters cover purchasing and fitting out a boat and would be well worth the price I think for just those chapters.
