the plate would have been on the leading edge, it is a few years since we did it, but you may need the centre board up to reveal the metal plate.
Once the plate is removed, lower the centreboard and it will move aft and off the pivot.
The pivot bolt is permanently glassed into the hull of the boat.
It is possible that things are different on the Mark IV, but assuming you cannot see the pivot bolt from within the boat then I think you will have a similar arrangement.
