looking for a boat (or two) for trans-pacific passage from seattle (PNW)

hi all,
i'm a novice sailor, still developing my wind sense. i have been sailing at least once a week at the center for wooden boats in seattle in the past month and a half. i can solo a junior knockabout, cat boat, and spritsail. i hoisted a spinnaker once. i know how to rig bermuda, simple gaff and simple sprit sails. my longest trip so far was from la conner (wa) to seattle on a columbia 26, which took 14 hours and in which i learned some chart reading.
i'm a carpenter by trade. i enjoy making and fixing things. i'm a very tool-capable person. i repaired one sail, so far. i also have worked in the restaurant business as both a dishwasher and cook. i'm an outdoor person and a trained rock climber.
my main destination is indonesia. however, i'm willing and eager to take however many rides to achieve my goal. i just wanna get my feet wet, literally and figuratively. i'm available immediately.
sincerely yours,
koko

The Baja Ha-Ha goes from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico leaving Oct. 25. Some of the boats will go trans Pacific later. You can register to be crew here.

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.
