Worth repeating, about eleventy-billion times!

Unless you have some really unusual requirements, it will practically ALWAYS be cheaper, easier, quicker, and safer to just buy a boat that is suited to your needs in the first place, rather than buying a boat that is not, and then planning to modify it.
