Ok so I just bought a 3.85m Achilles ex surf boat. So I'm not in as much rush to complete this project as I was but I would still like to complete it and maybe Donate/Sell for cheap to my dive club or someone in it...

You won't be the first nor the last person to do that.

If you Are careful cutting, you could leave the current join, and use the wide section to form a double skin on the bow toobs - saves removing & tidying the old joint, and gives wear protection against ropes etc. Humber double skin the bows on their "industrial" spec boats.
