Catalina 22 swing keel faring?

I just bought a C22 that has been in fresh water all its life. I took a look at the swing keel and it is in pretty good shape but I plan to use it in salt water. I will replace the keel cable and other hardware but I'd like to protect the swing keel from the water the best I can. Do I epoxy it? Fiberglass? Galvanize? Paint? What products are good for this?
Is there an aftermarket replacement keel made of stainless steel or anything like that? ~LL
