Watkins 23 refit

I just bought a 1978 Watkins 23 XL and Im in the process of restoring her. I'm very impressd with the ruggedness of her design and how well she's stood not being particularly well cared for. The only modification I can think of right now is I plan to install a traveler on the bridge deck. The main sheet leads to two blocks on the transom.

I live in Orange Park, Fl. and I'll be doing this on my time off duty (I'm a Merchant Mariner) and on a budget, I hope to launch the last week of May! Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can give me.
