C&C Corvette Centerboard

I have a C&C 31 Corvette and the centerboard is stuck. I want to remove the board and have it refinished and reinstalled. Does anyone have experience doing this job, for example, where is the pin? what's best method? Photos?

Thanks in advance!

I'd imagine that there are also knowledgeable folks which you can find through the regular C&C association. As there are plenty of thing water boats in there too.
