Fixing my vancouver 25 in the carribean

Helo.

I have some repairs to be done on my 29 foot pocket cruiser. A vencouver 25. It is now on a drydock in antigua and i plan to sail to the pacific this season.
I will explain and appricite any suggestions and recomendations:

1. I have some advanced corosion at the first 3 sm of my must. I plan to cut this portion off and make up for it by placing a 3 sm wood spacer between the deck and the must step. Im a bit worrid about making the cut on the bottom of the mast perfectly eaven using only a disk grinder. Anybody with expiriance and knoledg knows if this can be done or if eaven the slightest mistake can endanger the strangh of my must?

2. I need some steinless welding done on one of my chein plates. Les then an hours work for a professional. Anybody knows a talanted and fare prised welder in the area of my boat? Dominicana, jamica, portorico and anyware in the area.

P.s. money is an issue for me

Thank you so much!
Gal
