Swing keel question on a Helms 25

This is a very elementary question but one that may heavily influence the purchase of a Helms 25.

From my research, the Helms 25 has a swing keel- are there any exceptions to this? The current owner swears it doesn't have one but hasn't hauled the boat himself to see.

I can dive the boat to take a quick look but is there any other way to verify the existence of a swing keel. My concern is trailerablity in the future as I am an active duty military member and have to always keep that in the back of my mind.

Thank you for any help.
