Ferro Boat Repair

I have some spots in the deck of a ferrocement boat that need to be repaired.

If i bust out the ferrocement, and weld in new rebar, will the electricity from the arc welder cause problems with the hull since i will essentialy be creating a circut through all the rebar in the body of the boat?

I would be keeping the boat in the water while i make these repairs.
Thanks,

ncosson
