Im a longshoreman and I worked on the cougar ace. I got to see the damage first hand. The degree of the list caused a bath of salt water, battery acid, coolant and AFT throughout most of the ship. You could smell the corrosive materials on the ship. They clean up nice, but the battery acid and the sea water got in the engine department. So you are possibly looking at electrical damage that you cannot see and will be a future problem as corrosion works its way through. The list even allowed the fluids to get in the door panels and other compartments. Sounds like it could lead to future rust problems. Good luck to anyone looking to buy one.
