Question Interesting Keel Design

Here is my new boat! She's a 1969 Westerly 28 and every time I look at her I wonder about her keel design. The vertical leading edge would be prone to catching kelp, debris, ect. and I hate to think about running aground.

What do you think? Also, how hard would it be to modify the leading edge to make it less vertical?
