I've suddenly gone to wondering: what ever happened to the S.S. Anne? Did they recover it and make her ship-shape? If a few people had died onboard, (I don't think they did, I've seen the episode a long time ago) did they make it a memorial like the U.S.S. Arkansas at Pearl Harbor? What's your idea?

I think it just sank and they left it there ala Titanic. I do think that's the added bonus of the SS Aqua as the boats were kinda the same. Although I don't think the anime did the SS Aqua, in fact I don't think they named any boats since the St. Anne.
My best guess would be memorial and just retire them. Besides most of those boats are attacked by Team Rocket whenever they have Ash as a passenger, probably save them any attachment issues by just making them generic.
Just my thoughts.
