Re: Hi! Bought a sailboat without knowing how to sail..
Welcome aboard. Sounds like you have the basic of sailing down, but might consider a week long liveaboard sailing course. It would really tune you up and expose you to the knowledge of cruising a keel boat.
Your goal of making her pristine has taken down more than one sailor. Keep in mind that boats are continually exposed to a harsh evironment and while you are completing one thing on your list, another is likely to be added.
Just be sure to maintain a healthy balance between maintenance and sailing. Pursuit of the perfect boat with nothing on the to-do list is the holy grail and no one has found it yet.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
