Is the boat nice otherwise?? your lucky if you can access the inside of the keel! remove the sand. fix the glass in a out. Get someone that knows keels of this type to inspect it and see if the whole thing is safely part of the hull. This could be a perfect time to change actual ballast weight too! I've read of people using lead shot mixed with resin (very heavy) sand you know about , cement, but resin is the only thing that would not absorb more water.
