If you were to take it apart and dry it out you may well be surprised.

I'm reasonably sure the wiring will. Be OK. Not so sure the motor can take a soaking of several hours.

Global warming indeed! Let me know if the motor is shot after drying, because I think I have a spare you can have for nowt. Will have to check the parts box.

I think that as soon as most of the water is out of the motor, get it connected to a battery as soon as possible to get it moving and to generate a bit of heat.
Good luck, will be intrested to see how it turns out.
