Calling all Hunter 42 Passage owners and others that can help

Found a Hunter 42 Passage (1993) in rough shape and need of upgrades to make it my dream boat. Specifically interested cost/time/difficulty in the following repairs/upgrades:
1) CNG to propane, I can get good estimates for the stove/oven but how hard and costly is the replacement of the lines and proper propane tank storage.
2) Rigging has some evidence of corrision but looks structurally sound how do I fix it or replace it
3) nearly all lines need replacing
4) want to add a power winch, any estimates for do-it-your self
5) interior is rough, need to refinish wood and clean leather, any thoughts
6) a cabin heater (forgot to mention this will be a liveaboard in Seattle area)

There are many other maintenance items but most just need elbow grease and time which I have enough of, I think? Any other thoughts from your knowlegeable group would be most appreciated

Thanks Ron
