A, as good as it is/was, some of the stuff I've seen on board the Womboat is rather out-dated now and hence wouldn't be worth much at all.

Hopefully the insurers will cough up for new.. at least that's what I'd like tho expect they'd do. Who are you insured with?

The other issue will be your needing to come up to speed with the new gear - some of which will be radically different to operate (and not necessarily better in that regard) than your current systems... That in itself will be a right PITA.
