If the intention is for the sail fish to survive a "release", it should never come out of the water. Good chance that billfish died..... for a photo.

This for various reasons, including damaging the protective coating that is found on the skin, damaging internal organs that can't handle being dragged over a gunnel, and of course lack of oxygen to the gills, just to name a few.
Ever wonder why fish tagging is done while the animal stays in the water without handling.

Nonetheless, good for you to get out on the water with your uncle.

That is great you and your uncle went out and caught some fish, and him 80 years old! Awesome! But yeah, catch and release is better if the fish is left in the water, after it came over the side maybe better to make a bunch of fish tacos --

Not easy to release a fish with a long sharp bill in the water, I would try and hold the bill and snip the hook off with wire cutters, don't know how else you could do it and release the fish unharmed.
