Swing Keel refurbishing

Hey Everyone,

I've spent an hour searching with no luck so now it's time to post...
I'm doing maintenance on my CS22 swing keel, the boat is new-to-me and the underside needs alittle TLC. There`s a fair bit of play (shown in the attached video) in the keel, likely where the pin goes through. My question is this: is it possible to remove the pin to pull the swing keel out without dropping the entire ballast? I`m assuming I need to remove the bolt holding the pivot pin in place but have no idea how to go about doing that. I can`t seem to find any information on what I`m trying to do anywhere, so any help would be appreciated.
