cb32863 makes a good point, in fact the first thing I thought of when I read your initial post. May I suggest you contact your local Coast Guard Auxiliary and get a (free) safety inspection? They won't/can't write tickets and may note some things that haven't made you list. In general the list from them is probably going to include the high priority items. Oh - move boat hook to the top of your list. *grin*
Far from beating you up, I think you can be pleased with yourself for getting off the dock and not letting "the list" keep you from sailing.
Although you said you are budget conscious, consider unlimited towing from Boat/US or SeaTow -- whichever is more prevalent in your area. Cheap and very helpful.
sail fast and eat well, dave
beware "cut and paste" sailors.
