My current underwater camera is a canon compact. I get decent shots, but I just moved to St Thomas from NY and am diving a lot more often. I want to try to market and sell some pictures.

I have cannon 60d that I use for land shots. I have a 70-200 zoom and a 17-40 lens for this cannon. I am thinking of buying a housing for the 60d. For the money that I would spend on a housing, dome and lens for the 60D, am I better off going a different route? Is the 60D a good camera for underwater shots or is there a better camera for underwater?

message Nothing wrong with the body (you can shoot nice video with it, too), just no great uw-lenses in your line-up.
Get a wider wideangle lens, e.g. the Tokina 11-16mm, matching dome-port and 1-2 strobes (cheap ones with diffusers will do), then price the whole affair and consider whether its all worth it.
