centerboard access

Has anybody blocked a centerboard boat (think Bristol 38.8 or 41 or similar), so that the centerboard can be lowered for painting and repair. The alternative would be to keep boat hanging in a sling (expensive), or remove the centerboard entirely from the boat (not easy). The centerboard in question has blisters and impact damage, so it will not be a fast job. Thanks. I'm not yet an owner, but I'm trying.

Re: centerboard access

A hole may be a good option, if the boatyard is agreeable. I guess there is no easy answer for servicing a centerboard. That would explain why the boat I am looking at, which is otherwise in great condition, at has such a poorly maintained board and trunk.
