I'm not familiar with particulars of the G26, but I expect there is a big bolt that goes through the keel and acts as the pivot pin for the centerboard. The ends of the bolt are recessed and covered over with filler.

You'll need to find it, dig the filler out, undo the nut from the bolt, and probably use a sledge hammer and drift to drive the rusted bolt out of the rusted keel.

I'll probably be talking to someone this weekend who has experience with the G26. If my guess is wrong, I'll post a follow-up.
