i still think plumber putty would stop the inflow of water. its sticks just fine to wet stuff, does not really harden so clean up should be easy. seal up everything under water then pump out thru the roof hatch. it might only take a few buckets of the stuff

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Sorry to hear you are having so much trouble lifting her. In my former business we had to plug underground pipes to keep water out to work in them, etc. We rented inflatable plugs, they come in lot's of different sizes (4"- 48"+) and they might be useful for what you are trying. Don't know the name of anyone in your area, but a search for pipe plugs, or dewatering, or construction services might turn up something. The name of the place we used in Seattle area was Advanced Underground, maybe they could direct you to someone near you. They aren't too expensive to rent, but not really cheap either. Best of luck to you.

Airbags are used for shipping. Cheap, disposable ones. Every warehouse or supply store should have them - it is sealed paper/plastic bag with a valve.
They used for securing a load in trailer or conteiner.

I do not see any way of getting that boat into deep water except by having a BIG power boat lashed up tight against the sail boat and the back wash of the twin screws hosing a path to freedom.
IMHO

This resting place is starting to look more and more permanent. A nice boat is facing a sad fate.

I ask whether anyone knows if the state is likely to intervene here. I recall from a thread about a similar situation involving the loss of a Pearson Flyer on the Maine shoreline there were comments that the state would go after the owner for the cost of removal. What rules apply here, do they change much by state, or by shoreline versus inland?
