Hi John, as a first shot give it a good rinse with fresh water to get the salt crystals out of it. . On a previous boat I had one seize up mid Pacific. We unfurled the sail by hand, lowered the sail. Gave the swivel a good wash and it freed up. For good measure we pumped a bit of grease in. It fixed the problem. I have since been told not to put grease in but on that occasion it was fine and I kept it greased for the rest of my ownership, about another 5 years. Didn't seem to do it any harm.
May not fix yours but its a simple first try.
