Mystery - Painting Centerboard

So our "new" 1979 Pearson 35 is in the yard, waiting to launch. I'm about to put a new coat of ablative on the bottom, but how do people usually handle painting the centerboard? To get it in the down position do you have to have it hanging in the sling to paint it and let it dry? This paint requires at least 4 hours before launch. I'd like to hear different strategies.

You have to dig a deep hole, leaving at least 8" from all sides, more on the side in which you will lower the ladder. It usually goes pretty quick if you can get blocked on a fairly sandy area. j/k

or I bring the travel lift operator a 12 pack of beer or bottle of rum, and have him leave it in the slings while they go to lunch.

Sorry I couldn't help myself Its always an issue for me, especially this year because I want to remove the c/b and take it home to do some repair and paint. To bad they don't have some sort of quick release on them.

What paint BTW?

I try to get the marina to lift me at the end of the day, and leave me in the slings overnight so I can get a few coats on the board and in the trunk. If not I do the over lunch thing, but found the paint doesn't get a chance to really set up and the board comes out with out paint at the end of the season.

That centerboard on the T37 is very simillar to the Pearson 35 ... in fact I thought it was a P35 until I saw the skeg was different.
