It just means you learn really fast or make lots of mistakes or both.

Re: Help me identify please..

On the extreme right hand lower corner of the round table I can identify a phillips/blade combination drill driver bit.

Really like your snatch blocks. Always very useful while rigging preventers and or additional sheet leads.

Re: Help me identify please..

That light multi-purchase tackle looks like it has a reef hook on the end and a short line. If so, I may have been a cunningham.

Re: Help me identify please..

the 2 center and top right assemblies are goose neck fittings,these slot into the mast track,and either a boom or the tack of a sail bolts through the hinged part.

top left is a halyard sheve,that is either inserted inside the mast,or mounted exteriour of the mast,for a rope /wire halyard,im guessing it is a spare

Yes, that's right. As a schooner it could be the foresail or mainsail if the foresail is boomed.

Atoll says gooseneck. I think it could be an outhaul as well for the aft end of the boom.

You've got lots of neat stuff there and is good trading material at a sailor's flea market.

Sail handling when your engine doesn't work would be an area where smaller boat handling might have prepared you more. Depends on the skipper. My friend did a lot of sailing from east coast, through the canal, south Pacific and a lot of it single-handing but for the first few thousand miles he didn't sail without his engine running. Sometimes shaking that pilot feeling that when the engine isn't running something bad will soon happen.

If they are bronze and connect the jib to the jib stay then they are piston hanks or jib hanks.

Your furler has grooves for the luff tape, the leech line tensions the leech of the sail.
What you describe sounds like a twisted shackle.
