Encapsulated or Bolt On Keel?

I''m shopping for my first sailboat (fast coastal cruiser) and ran into a boat with an encapsulated keel. All others I''ve seen were bolted on. What are the potential advantages/drawbacks for performance and structural integrity? The boat is a Dehler 35 Optima.

Thanks, Art
