encapsulated keel

Hi all,
When i purchased my PSC 37 the previous owner told me the keel was encapsulated, and on haul out inspection all looked good, and in fact is fine.
I have now hauled to redo anti-foul and discovered the keel has a skim coat of, i'm not sure, epoxy maybe then solid lead. This is not my understanding of "encapsulated".
So my question is, should i fair the lead keel before anti-foul or can i just paint the lead straight up.?
What has avery one else done?

Appreciate comments
