First off, it'll still be the same boat, just different fasteners and paint. The USS Constitution has had every piece of wood in her replaced except for parts of the keel, and she's still the oldest ship in the US Navy.
Next, who actually wants the refit - the owner or the builder? And why? Answer these questions and you'll know what to do.
Suggestion - maybe the best solution is to build a second boat.
