Cool Retiring to the Sea

I am looking at a 45 foot ketch (32000 lbs) rigged for single handed sailing, as a live-aboard, sailing from Tasmania throughout the pacific islands.
Can the cameraderie out there, give me any information regarding stocking,
and or anything else that I may have forgotten.
Any and all suggestions will be greatfully received:

Phileas...Welcome! I am not familiar with the Pacific but there are a few other Aussies here that may b abe to help you out. I also suggest you try the SSCA bulletin board www.ssca.org which has a lot of world and Pacific Island cruisers on it AND get familiar with www.noonsite.com which has country by country information and customs/immigration/harbors and marinas.
Hope that helps a bit!

I also suggest you read about Ken Barnes story both here and at his web site as you may pick up a pointer or two on what to expect from a 45' ketch and yourself in the South Pacific.

Yeah Phileas...I hope yer not just climbing aboard and taking off...Just the Sydney-Hobart race annals should be enough to convince anyone that things can go to hell quickly out there and both YOU and the BOAT need to be prepared for any eventuality.
What is YOUR sailing background and what do you feel you need help with?
