I'd find a long, thin, flat tool (something like a metal ruler) to use to dislodge any marine growth around the center board and trunk. Mask, snorkel or scuba equipment would also help.
Sometimes going out on a 'bouncy' day (when there are waves) can be enough to free up a snag like this. Unfortunately this is this also the kind of day when you would want your center board deployed.
Good luck.

On the swollen wood of the CB Well you need to let it dry out then primer & paint it with bottom paint.
But while the CB is out, you can check for dry rot and other ills that may affect the wood structure of your CB well and keel.
Check the pivot pin for wear and the babbit bearing also. Along with the connection point of your CB Pendant.
