oomfh is on a distinguished road
I would say you are lucky to be able to remove the the old keel bolts. There are boat maintenance companies that simply drill (bringing a modified drill press inside the boat) and tap brand new holes in cast iron keels - next to the old/original bolts at a cost 100 times what you spent above.

Way to go!
