For early years of service you need to see his passing certificate ADM 107/11/252 which is held by the National Archives in Kew. It will not tell you where but will tell you when and which ships, with a bit of calculation.
As for the rest Family History sites might help

Confirmation needed for William Archbold: What year was WA born and where [Portsea?], What year did WA join RN [c.1782?], and where [Portsmouth?]
