Welding? Hopefully you don't need that too much.
If you want to be inspired by determination check out the guy in Annapolis who got the "free" Morgan 30 (I will get the link). Spent weeks refairing the hull, putting on 7 coats of primer and 6 coats of Awlgrip, all in full tyvek and respirator. Took apart his winches, re chromed his hardware, re powered and had to re bed the engine 6 times and the shaft was still not right for th esea trial and the boat took on water. And I am still not scared off.
