Firstly, welcome to CF.
There is a lot of criticism on CF for not doing enough to discourage such as yourself from doing dangerous things and then after you get yourself in trouble we critique you well after you have drowned.
I don't want to discourage you completely, but you definately should not be heading out to see, at all! Yes, you can drown in 35 foot waves.
but the waves are not the only problem at sea.
Get a house boat and stick to the rivers. It's far safer there for someone that doesn't have any experience and you will always have the Internet
. If, you later want to get involved in learning
to sail, then fine, get a boat and start learning
, bit by bit, on fine days on day trips. But for now, you need to be attached to the shore for your own safety
. I'd suggest for you at this stage it wouldn't even be safe to be anchoring
