They can re-float it. Even at Pearl Harbor, ships that were submerged or capsized were salvaged and repaired. In fact, I'd say this isn't even going to be especially challenging. You essentially just pump the water out, perhaps also force it out with air pumped into the hull, while using a cofferdam over the damaged hull area.
