How easy is it to replate a 50ft narrowboat diy style

I am the proud owner of a 50ft boat that required rebottoming and possibly the sides. I have an experienced welder (although not of narrowboats!) I have been told that I should, with the help of my welder friend be able to achieve a replate at home. What are the pros and cons and what should I specifically, if anything, be aware of. Many thanks.

Regular WW writer Michael Minifie did exactly that, and wrote up the experience in an article in our January 2006 issue.
You can download the article here - free for a limited time. It's a 2Mb PDF so you'll need to be on a broadband connection to download it.
