Thanks for the advice, especially comments after seeing the underwater profile of the boat. gives me confidence that should be ok for some sheltered sailing prior to taking her out of the water later and getting the centreplate fully operational

If it is that corroded I'd certainly wait until she is out of the water in case the pivot bolt breaks when you hit it (unless you are on a drying mooring so you can recover it). When the time comes a bit of percussive engineering should solve the problem as long as he corrosion is not too bad . Rust expands the parent metal (which is why steel reinforced concrete splits when the rebar goes rusty) and if it's too far gone you might have a real mare getting it out.
