I've said it before, but Sailnetters can be a very conservative group when it comes to things like this. It's not a bad thing at all, but you have to know how the population is slanted if you want to know how to guage the feedback you're getting.
You get a reasonable boat, get it surveyed, capable of doing the trip, and I'll sail with you. Should take some of the steepness off the learning curve. I've been sailing for about 10 years now, have owned 4 boats up to 36 foot, have sailed all around Hawaii, and have always wanted to do the Cali-Hawaii run.
Regardless of who, consider taking someone along who knows a thing or two about sailing, and you're on you way!
