Pack the sides of the mastgate so to reduce the movement would be good, stops the mast bending and moving about the mast pin.

Rig tention should be around the 350ibs mark, or when sailing the leeward shroud soft but not loose. This tention will differ for each wind strength.

If your not sure about the cutout in the centreboard, how about making a cardboard template of the head of the board to include the bolt hole.

Then cut out what you think maybe a good slot and try it in the boat. I would try this slot to the bolt hole at a 45′ angle from the leading edge to start with so that would hold the board on the bolt and may not fall off.
