Re: Centerboard damage.

I don't know, but I suspect that the "rocks and mud" may have been ballast. It is not uncommon for manufacturers to use iron and cement encased in resin as ballast. It seems like water may have crept in there and between freeze/thaw and the formation of iron oxide, it broke the ballast into bite size pieces.
