Inspection of Gib Sea 123

I am about to inspect a Gib Sea 123. The owner informs me that the keel bolts are encased in resin and cannot be inspected. Is this common in yachts. I thought they had to be visible to be checked and tightened if necessary. This a 1986 vintage and it worries me that these bolts may never have been serviced . Any gib Sea owners know about this?
