Bolt-on keels

For those of you who love bolt-on keels, and think encapsulated ballast is old fashioned, I've assembled a reading list. Feel free to draw your own conclusions.

CHEEKI RAFIKI: Hull Found Again, Post Mortem | Sailfeed
Beneteau 40.7 Cheeki Rafiki missing Mid-Atlantic - Page 5 - Sailing Anarchy - Sailing Anarchy Forums
Seeking to learn from keel failures >> Scuttlebutt Sailing News
Beneteau First 235 - O Beneteau Keel Bolts you scare me
Rusty Keel Bolts - How bad is it?
Hooligan V ? Report on loss of keel
Keeping the keel attached >> Scuttlebutt Sailing News

I, for one, am sticking to my encapsulated keel -- because it has remained stuck to the bottom of my boat.
