It's funny how stuff Gets misread. It's just the link I provided gives that option, but not necessary.

As far as leaks, once it's bolted on, one can just fair-in and FG/epoxy over the new bulb just like it were part of the original keel. Simple as that!
I realize that the OP was about just adding to the existing keel. I was commenting on the application specified in the MarsKeel site.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
