remove my bow sprit to varnish?

I have to strip and restore the bowsprit on my Marshall 22.  I want to take it off the boat for convenience but I do not know how to do this or how hard it would be.  The boat is now on the hard with the mast up.  I could secure the bow stay that is attached to the bow sprit.

Has anyone done this?  Opinions?  Thanks!

Best bet, send Geoph an email .
May be as simple as removing lower toggle of headstay and lifting outboard end up and pulling heal out of socket. May need to remove socket, and depending on age be prepared to snap and replace bronze bolts.
