I, too, am curious if they will raise the ship, if just to clean up the "garbage", so to speak.

Actually, this ship took several hours to sink, which would indicate that the damage to the hull wasn't super severe. I doubt there is a 100-foot gash in the hull.

Interestingly, the damage to the Titanic, caused by the iceberg is only 12 square feet. That is the size of your average household front door.

The ship could probably be raised, and then scrapped. I doubt it would ever be put back into service, as it would be very expensive, and this low-budget ferry line wouldn't want to spend the money to do so.
