I am the new owner of 3459 and I am doing a bit of refurbishing over the winter.
One problem  I have found is I can't remove the centreboard. The retaining pin is just spinning. As far as I can see its just treaded into the board? Am I missing something? Could there be a nut or similar set inside the board or has it just stripped the threads.
Any suggestions on how to get it out would be great

I suspect the bolt will just be driven into the board, there is unlikely to be a nut bonded in. Could you get a pair of mole grips onto the head of the bolt and pulling as you twist?
