There's some stuff I need to know and I've been having a hard time finding any good sources. I tried joining a forum for boaters so I could ask questions but it won't allow me to post or talk to anyone until a certain amount of time has passed. I also tried going to the library but I couldn't really find a whole lot of stuff on sailing. :/ I do know some things. Like if you were going on a long trip it's a good idea to buy a boat with sails just in case you run out of fuel before you make port. I know you need your shots and supplies and things. But what I really need to know is what type of skills a person attempting a long voyage in a sailboat would have to have? What kind of boat would you buy to do something like that? Any info you guys could give me would really be helpful! Thanks.
