I dont know what you consider a tight budget BUT even with a good size one this would be a big job IF you do it in one shot

The bigger question would be how to build a system that could have things added in a manner that allow you to expand without wasting money

For example a size X solar pannel with a control would most likely cost less than a compleat safe and legal shore power system which requires a LOT of stuff

My J24 which we use to cruise has a very basic electric system Navigation lights and a few small cabin lights

With a single battery this will get you through any weekend as a starting point

I would think a good step one would be to decide how many switches you thing you need IMHP 6 would do fine on a small boat as even my Cal 29 left the factory with 6

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
