        Is there any reason e.g. hull shape, not to convert an old rotten

The hull shape should be fine, might even be graceful & pretty. Sailboat hulls are designed for low drag and
good stability, you want that. They are also designed to steer when heeled and you probably don't need that,
but it doesn't hurt.

The only reason I can think of not to is that it may be rotten in some places where you don't expect. If you put
your foot thru it in the middle of the river, the electric stuff will get wet and that's bad.
