Aloha Drew,
Welcome aboard! If you would ask very specific questions then we might be able to help. Here is an easy book that makes the fundamentals of sailing pretty clear: "Start Sailing Right!"
The other thing I could suggest is that you go to the local marina and ask around for a sailing class.
Kind regards,
JohnL

thank you

what i was planning is buying a descent sized ocean blue water cruiser and setting it up for me to single hand and dock it in Florida area and then see if theirs any experienced sailors to help even if i need to pay them so im 100% confident in my own boat i like the full keel design and also like the sloop setup i wanna set it up for single hand and make it as structaruly sound and able to reliably sail it without electronics also would like to setup autopilot and probably a wind generator as when its full setup and i am confident i can live abroad as i liek to fish alot that can lend to saving some money on food
