That looks like bare metal. IIRC, the Bendytoys used iron for the keel material...and having exposed metal like that is bad.
When you did the work last year, did you drop and re-bed the keel or just work on it as it was? If you didn't drop the keel, inspect the bolts and re-bed it, you should probably do that now.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
