Questions... actually more of a Survey

I'm just trying to gather as much as I can about Sailing so I can better plan how I will get into sailing once I get into college. Haha sorry about the huge amount of questions... I just have a lot of them I guess. My apologies if any of the questions are a bit personal.

-How big is your boat?
-How much did your boat cost?
-What age did you get your boat/get into sailing?
-How often do you go sailing?
-How close do you live to the ocean?

-How often do you get stuck with no wind in the ocean?
-What do you do if you get stuck in a thunderstorm while you are at sea?
-How do you produce electricity for appliances?
-Is sailing to remote islands as simple as sailing there and anchoring or do you have to deal with customs officers and passports and finding a marina?
-What precautions do you take against getting attacked by pirates?
-Do you fish for food a lot or do you mostly buy everything?

For people that live in their boats:
-Do you live alone or with other people? (who else and how many?)
-Do you have pets?
-Do you mostly live in one marina or do you constantly move around?
-How do you make a living?
-If you have kids, how do they get an education?
-Is it hard to make and keep friends?

Hi and welcome to the Forum. I read your first introduction post. This here section is for introductions. If you take a look around the CF, you will find many of the questions you have asked here have already been discussed. If you want to ask a question however, take a look at the various sections and post your question under a relevant heading. That way you have a better chance of folks seeing, reading and answering your post.
I am going to close this post so as answers do don't get posted here, or they will get lost.
No harm done by the way.

For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.
