    Nope, restoring a tank stuck in bog for 70 years is a lot easier. The bog is both fresh water and most of the oxygen is gone, reducing corrosion. Salt water

Salt water will destroy every internal component. The only thing that will stand is the armor and even that will be severely pitted. Now, if the Sherman was sitting next to the Titanic or Bismark, you might be better off ( the deeper the better ).

      If they can restore tanks that have been stuck in bogs for 70 years, restoring one that has been on the bottom of the ocean shouldn't be too bad, right?

      Have you gents seen this?

      Empire Heritage
      Convoy HFX 305 (out of Halifax?)
      Sunk North Atlantic, Sept 8, 1944

      Looks like there are a few 105 Shermans in the mix.
