Re-wiring a boat is a pretty labor intensive thing, and there isn't any way to give you a rough ballpark without knowing what you're installing, and even then, you're going to have a pretty wide range.
Is there a way to know what the damage is? Pin holes may be hard to find. Im sure a normal survey wouldnt find these things. What do you suggest?
