I think you have the right idea - this is the bottom of your boat, you can't afford a learning experience from making a mistake. Although the work is not technical or complicated, I'd have a pro do it. Find some other projects where you can learn how to use epoxy and fg where a mistake or two wouldn't carry such a downside.
