When I see a boat like this, I always wonder if it can ever really be restored. I'd love to think so, but most electrical and mechanical things I'm familiar with don't react well to immersion in salt water.

Your right about that. This boat has been posted on several times. On one of the first posts they showed pictures of it covered with heavy snow which was the cause of the sinking. Had been at least listing for some time to cause the ice cycles to grow to sideways. Not sure just how long it actually was submerged or what and how soon any thing was done to it in mid winter when she was finally refloated and hauled.
If you don't get on these things ASAP it just doesn't do it any good. This boat was originally posted for sale in the mid $70K range if I remember correctly. That was mid last year I think. Been around for some time, also not a good sign. It will most like be a complete rebuild and I think they will be lucky to get $30K for her. I would also expect rework to run over $125K unless you need another job for the next 5 years.

Wow. After seeing the picture of her mostly underwater, I think there's reason to wonder about the good sense the the people currently trying to sell her. I'm thinking its a 45-foot paperweight.

Part is under water, part is above. Am I missing something about the definition of "partially?"

partially would be a salesperson's description.
Mostly would be mine.

"partially sunk" maybe but "total write-off".

looking at the picture from another angle.. (pic in thread above.) doesnt it stike anybody as fishie ( no pun intended) that the warf, boat behind this one and the rest of the area around only has about a foot of snow on it.. not really enough to tilt a boat of this size over... The snow looks to a have fallen evenly everywhere else... there has to be more to this than the snow load. heater running inside and a faulty sump pump.. snow over time melts into the boat and then a final dump tips it ???

If the engines and gears were not preserved they are junk, some parts may be ok. All electrical will need to be stripped out, including refrig, and range, cushions are junk, sound insulation will take a long time to dry out.
What you are left with is a hull, the SS rails, shafts and props. and rudders, steering may be ok, the rest will need to be refurbished. There will be engine oil all over the place, requires detergent and warm water flush 2-3 times, a catch barrel with absorbants in it to capture oil.
It is a labor intensive job, and expensive, I know.
Boats like this should not bring more than $8,000 to $12,000. I was totaled.
14 years ago I paid $1,200.00 for my 3870, sunken boat, same condition from the insurance co. every thing was replaced except the hull.
A friend just sold in Seward, AK a 70's 42' uniflite for $100.00-sunken boat.
If you have money and time and the knowledge to do most of the work, especially the electrical, make an offer, sooner or later the seller will sell for a lot less than being asked for now.
