I might agree if I hadn't done it myself over a hundred times. If I had ever once had a problem I would agree with you. The keel could fall off at any moment as well, but I still go sailing. If you want to avoid all possible stay in bed in the morning. As I said before you can avoid the problem by running on all batteries as much as possible, which is better for your batteries anyway, but if you find yourself in the situation where you have to switch while running, I promise, the keel wont fall off.
