Mmmm ! I doubt if you could lift a wooden boat on compressed air, the pressure would blow the decking off and out.

I've helped bring Yachts (GRP) and the like out of the Medway on Air bags or beer keg pontoons and strops and with a tidal lift, if the occasion arose that would be my choice for a wooden hull.
