Well if you do scrap the boat the Lead would be worth a nice penny.

Stringers, I guess can support the stress up or down if done right. Seems like allot work though.
I would think maybe lifting it enough to see the hull flex back and then reinforce the insides. Major structure is needed to reshape the bottom and secure the keel again. There's a company that makes fiberglass lumber, it's sold by Jamestown distributors. But, if you love the boat...
