IMO boats like these never run, operate, or feel the same after sinking. As stated the electrical systems will continue to have issues for the rest of the boats life. Mold in the fabric, seats, headliner will never end (would never feel comfortable sleeping).

Story: A boat sank in the slip next to ours last year, come to find out that boat was re-float and sank for the second time, this with NO insurance due to previously sinking.

Agreed. The cost to refit a boat properly following a sinking is usually more than the boat is worth. My biggest nightmare isn't the boat sinking, it's the insurance company not totaling it afterwards.
