But do spend a fair bit of time sailing her and getting used to how she handles in different situations... I think that was one of the biggest mistakes Heather Neill made, and now she'll be selling her Flicka, Flight of Years, for a huge financial loss.

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.

Read a couple books by those that have done it, then go buy a Lazer or Hobie, throw a EPIRB on it and go.
We'll read about it in the newspaper.

Really, do some reading, this is such a open ended question that many many books have been written about it. No response to a forum question could possibly respond adequately.

Not really once I'd choose or recommend for an ocean crossing. I can think of a dozen 35-37' boats I'd take before a Hunter 36. The Canadian Sailcraft 36T, the Southern Cross 35, the Alberg 37, the Hallberg Rassy Rasmus 35, just to name a few.

Good, take your time Zura. It takes one year to learn how to sail and five years to become a sailor.

I think that sailing is one of those things, like chess, that takes a lifetime to master.
