Projected Refit Costs

I decided to nut out some figures of what this little venture is going to cost me and holy smokes! Now I know why they say that a boat will cost you everything. As an example, here is one of the through hulls from the cockpit scupper. Somehow I have to free up the sea cock because it is frozen, replace the hose and put 2 stainless steel bands on to secure it.
Anyway here goes. In all likelihood, costs will double my from projected ones, but I will try and stick to them if at all possible. The big costs may be ones that I haven't even thought about.

Electrical $5000
New Rigging $5000
*Liferaft $2500
Monitor WindVane $2500
Plumbing $2000
SSB $2000
Repairs to Gelcoat, caprail and Rudder $2000

*Satellite Phone $1000
