More Watkins 23"s

I know this is an old thread but I have been searching for Watkins 23 info after buying one out of the water near Tampa Bay. I am hoping to get her home next week with a trailer I have found to begin cleaning her up. We motored her to a marina a few miles from where she sat in shallow water for a year with the mast down and a good sign was that all the water stayed on the outside.
She needs a good scrubbing down and some running rigging but overall good condition but stripped down.
I hope to add a sink and coleman stove mount as well as an outside shower and BBQ.
I believe that with the trailer I will scrape her bottom and repaint without bottom paint as she is destined to be a trailer sailer for sure.
If anyone can post some inside pics for design of a galley set-up I would appreciate it. I have a through hull fitting on the port side where i assume it should go.

Thanks in advance,
Lee
