Are you the typical sailor or a 22-year old in top shape willing to work 10 hour days from dawn to dusk? (If you've got that much light next month.)
-bottom repaint (ablative)
Day job, unless you're doing fairing or longboarding
Day job again but I think I'd do it before the bottom paint so stuff didn't dribble on the fresh paint.
--a couple through hulls
Maybe two hours each if everything went well, maybe 4 hours each if it didn't as it usually doesn't. And you may need a second hand to hold the new fitting while you tighten it in, unless you also have a spud wrench.
--a new prop,
Another couple of hours, unless you need a prop puller or something else is stuck. Or you decide the cutless bearing also needs changing and that just doesn't want to be changed, or the new one isn't around in stock.
--and removing current vinyl name and adding a new one.
3-4 hours, assuming you've got the tools. Maybe do this first, so you can polish the hull after removing the old name, and before applying the new one.
So maybe four intense days, and knowing the way boat projects go, it could easily go five or six. Or seven. Make a list, make sure you've got all the tools and parts you'll need up front, down to the last tube of goo, and the tools to remove the old name.
