Encapsulated or Bolt On Keel?

Right you are Jeff_H, this Dehler 101 has a bolt-on iron keel. The owner and broker thought it was encapsulated(!?). The table post must be unbolted to remove the right floor panel to even see the bolts, which were in pristine condition.

Thanks for your detailed response on this issue, as well your responses to many queries on this board. I am relatively new to sailboats and sailboat systems, and I really appreciate your well balanced, well informed input.
