Hurricane damaged boats

One of the marinas around where I live has a couple of boats that people abandoned after Katrina, they are floating. I can get one of them for a couple hundred dollars, needs some cleaning and the sails look okay, how bad of a idea is this? The boat is around 24 foot.

Also on a side note, I have never sailed and neither has the guy who wants to go in on halves with me. We plan on making sure the little motor on this boat works and trying to sail it around lake pontchartrain, is this a bad idea?
