telescopic keel ?

If this is a duplicate, I apologise. A company called ETAP makes what you described. It''s a fin keel with a bulb on the end. It retracts into a fore-aft bulkhead by means of a screw. There''s even a recess in the hull to accept the bulb. They have many other clever innovations as well. Check them out at
