Cool watkins 25/shallow draft

Pray tell! I jus' bought a Watkins 25 this summer, (09). After re-placing the running rigging, & other work I plan on taking it out before end of the month, (October). Naturally I'm curious to see how she behaves...especially with the shalow draft & high freeboard. I can look at her & tell she's not fast. However you never really know until you take her out. Prior to this I understand she was out of the water frim '95 until 2009. The diesel runs well, [it's not the original]. Sails look great. Interior/exterior also. One burner on the stove has never been lit. Seals in the toilet look about gone. Anybody out there got any advice for me on this one...My previous craft for 20 years was a 16 ft. hobie... this is a big step up for me.
