I do not have experience with the glassed in part, but I did remove the CB on a smaller O'day.

One issue was getting it high enough to have clearance for the board, which on mine was done lifting with a big engine hoist and placed on taller stands. Then the board was lowered a little at a time with a floor jack and blocks. I made a rolling cradle for it with 2x4s and casters. Then used a grinder to get it to bare iron. There was a lot of pitting and it took several coats of epoxy and filler to fair it out. Painted with a rust inhibitor and finally with bottom paint. It was a time consuming and labor intensive project, complicated by the considerable weight. The end product was perfect though, most likely better than new and should last a very long time.
