Soliciting sage haulout advice

My '84 Endeavour 33' sloop is out of Albemarle Sound water for the first time in four years. Will have some blistering tended to and will have new bottom paint applied. The advice I'm seeking is what else should be done while on the stands? I need to free the little paddle wheel for the knot meter and service the four seacocks, but what else could I take advantage of? The hull sides will be polished. Thinking about the cutless bearing and the stuffing box, tightening the steering chain/cable, and replacing the zincs. Oh, and sanding and painting the prop! What else should I address before she's Travelifted back into the cold brackish blue? We pulled her a month ahead of schedule to take advantage of the Cypress Cove yard's 20% discount. Looking forward to seeing some of you on the Carolina coast!
