Just a crazy, far from the action idea: IF the boat is built on pontoons, why not drill a hole (underwater, gonna need a diver for this, and probably an air powered drill w/ a portable compressor) at a low point of the sunken pontoon, tap a high point and pump air into it. IF the leak is small, as described, wouldn't that fill the pontoon with air and provide boyancy?
Would be a big gamble to buy this puppy! Still. . . .
Hmm, needs a boiler and engines though. . ..
