BTW: Uploaded 3 disk images 10:20 AM EDT.

Thanks very much for uploading the disks! I don't think a Series II SupraTools disk was available online before now.

I think the best upgrade would be to install a Kickstart 3.1 ROM. Then you can use Workbench 3.1 and most more recent software which often requires at least Kickstart 2.04. Backward-compatibility is surprisingly good for OS-legal software. For things like games and demos there is WHDLoad which allows many to be installed to hard disk. You could also buy a Kickstart ROM switcher to allow both 1.3 and 3.1 ROMs to be fitted.
