Hi, first thing I'd do is probably change the props! Looks like the starboard prop has lost a blade, 😭 hope the shaft wasn't bent in the process 🤔
More when we know more about the boat (dimensions etc) motors, available batteries, other working accessories, Your intentions with the boat! Cheers Doug 😎

Hi Larry
As Doug says we need to know what you hope to achieve with your restoration? Also can you advise what modelling skills you have so we can pitch advice at the right level.
Intially I suggest you use some soap and water to wash the outside of the model and perhaps layout and photo all the loose electrical bits so we can see what you have.
I suspect this is perhaps a Robbe kit as some of the electrics seem to be of that genre.
It would be great if any member can identify the model

Live long and prosper

Yep, it's an old Robbe kit - Bohrinselversorger', an offshore supply vessel. Scale 1:25, LoA 126 or 130cm? See here for a video of one in action at Ahlen, Germany.

Yours for only €53 😉

Cheers Doug 😎
