Well all I can say is that regardless of if it is "worth" it to the owner to raise his sunken boat; it is the responsible thing to do and may in the long run save him from a wage garnishment for wreck removal or environmental fines. The best I can offer him is advice and moral support since I am on the west coast; regardless of what I think about the overall situation.
I have seen completely sunken boats in salt water re-floated and repaired. I have seen old tired boats completely gutted and restored to better than new, so if the owner wishes to restore this boat to it's former glory I see no reason why it can't be done. It's just a matter of money, and sweat equity.
