There are many folks who started out the way you are planning and have given up for various reasons; money, scale of project, life changes, etc.

Start at your local boatyards. They may have something where the owner is just looking to get out from under the boat yard payments.

Just be aware that even if you perform all the labor, you will ultimately spend much more than the boat will be worth. From an economics standpoint, it is best to buy a boat already done. Unless you simply love working on boats and do not care how much it costs.
