I dunno, a tree growing in the cockpit plus a budding reef ecosystem on the hull isn't going to wash off easily.
So many people think a hull is a boat... it's less than half a boat! What we have here is a long-neglected somewhat-watertight box that is pointy on one end. To turn it into a boat would require adding/building-in major components that would require approximately twice as much skilled labor as building a new boat.
