Smile More 'splaining about the stuck centerboard

I'm not from Michigan... that was one of the members trying to give me some help. I'm in Southern California. Where in California are you?

I didn't explain the hammering process quite right.

I didn't hammer on the center board, I hammered on the piece of metal that we had slid down between the side of the opening and the board. I placed the metal on the offending bolt. I "hammered" with a rubber mallet for a while and then used the side of a crescent wrench. (Didn't have a hammer on board.) The piece of metal from Ace hardware kept slipping off but eventually (took almost an hour) the bolt fell out the bottom.
