Removing the centre board from a Status 580
I am currently cleaning up a Status 580 and I would like to remove the centre board to clean it and to make it easier to turn the boat upside down. I have taken the cover off but I can't see a way to remove the centre board. Does anyone know how to get it out?
Thanks,
Liam.

Re: Removing the centre board from a Status 580
In case anyone else comes looking for it...

1. Remove the bolt (accessible through the inspection ports)
2. The bolt passes through a stanless steel tube. Find something slightly larger than the bolt and use it to hammer out the tube.
3. Lift the centreboard out with a chain block.
