Yes, my centerboard was covered with growth (mostly zebra mussels) and I put her up on jackstands and GENTLY worked the board loose with a paint scraper and hammer. Once it was loose, I was able to clean it up no problem.

Good luck, I think there are at least three Watkis 23 being refit in Florida right now!
