A little advice please!

I've bought a Coronado 23 MkII (shoal draft, 1'11"), and am getting ready to rig it (needs all new sheets and halyards). I'm in Colorado, and will only see lake sailing on this one. I've never sailed before, but plan on taking some classes first.
While I begin to rig it, I want to keep in mind two things: making it easy for friends with no knowledge to help out (color-coded sheets & halyards, etc), and doing the best I can to equip it for singlehanding it. It's a pretty basic boat, and I think I could even step the mast myself, with some smart ideas. I just want to try to rig it right the first time.
I was wondering if anybody had any advice about those subjects.

TIA, Dave
