I've done most of what you've mentioned. Jv4 is right about the handles. IMO if the engine is sound and you do average hours then it's doing you no real harm, even if it burns a few extra litres. If you've compounded GRP before you need no advice. If you haven't then I can give you a few tips. Rewiring makes sense - if you're doing it then use tinned wire and invest in some waterproof hot glue crimps and connecters. Check the condition of your battery cables. If the ends are blackened cut back to clean copper - replace if you need to. IMO teak deck looks nice for a while and then begins to show it's naughty side. It's very simple to recoat the deck with nonslip. I'd save the money for decent electronics. PM me if you want a chat.
