Question How to re-open a keel that was glassed over

Hi everybody,

I found a cute Tartran 37 that I would like to buy. The main problem I found so fare is that the keel was glassed over. I have never encountered yet this modification on a boat. I have few questions about reversing this procedure..

Is it a big deal to cut the glass?

What are the risks that the centerboard stay blocked ?

Any idea of a the cost of the procedure by a pro?

Would that means that the centerboard got barnacle growths resulting possibly in cracks ?


I appreciate your help!
Best,
Olivier
