What's up with the J80 keels?

A guy lost his keel in the Doublehanded Farrallones race last week in SF. Sounds like he got rolled by a breaker - but another J80 lost its keel recently (completely torn out at the sump).

Anyone know of what appears to be a structural problem here? Or is this just the inherent danger of a bulb keel?
