Well done! Having the familiarity you gained with your new boat and its systems is, at least, worth the equivalent of the $$ you spent! I have traveled a similar path. When you look at similarly priced boats (similar to what you have invested) you are not looking at boats with all the systems in new condition and are likely in need of what you have done to yours.
Enjoy! As you obviously already know, boats are not "things". They are a "process".
