I want to know how to use it well and be proficient in it's systems. So I'm going to just sail for awhile and get to know the boat. Work on the aesthetics (the wood looks terrible.) Make it a nice place to be that I know well.
No reason to have buyers remorse when you can unload fairly easily AT THIS POINT. I wouldn't dump to much $ into cosmetic fixes and focus on things that will make it seaworthy. You can do most on your list with $20 dollars in tools and a Google search
