It depends on the policy. Typically marine insurance policies cover salvage claims, and mandatory refloating, but if it sinks in five mile deep water it will be there forever. A big recent change is environmental damage protection coverage, I recommend at least $1m on any boat that carries substantial amounts of petroleum.

Keep in mind, with an "agreed value" policy, they aren't going to giveyou $1million dollars on a $5k boat.

The actual value you insure for won't change much. It just avoids the debate after the fact.

I had agreed value, the price doubled when boat turned 25 years old. I could have the same premium cost if I went with cash value. About half of boat. I'm still thinking that over.

That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life.
