Centerboard problem

Thanks for your reply. I would like to try what you have suggested. Unfortunately, the boat is now in the water. It was launched on Memorial Day. It usually stays in the water until Labor Day. Obviously I can''t remove the board while in the water. I guess I''ll see how it behaves going into and out of the trunk. From your advice, the worst case scenario seems to be continued waterlogging past repairability. Any idea how this continued deterioration will affect sailing ? In other words, if I leave it "as-is" this summer. (The hole is about the size of a nickel, and inside appears to be hollow now in about a 2 1/2/ diameter around the hole. All this is about 2" from the bottom of the board). Thanks for taking the time. I appreciate it.
