The bigger question in my mind, isn't how strong the hull is after repairing a 5" x 5" hole (if that was the actual size). My concerns would focus on the known corrosive effects seawater has on everything else, such as the many electrical and mechanical systems onboard. In many cases a sunken boat needs a complete gut and replacement of these components.
