Here are some pics. The stainless steel bolt was from a rudder.

Most surveyors have a black museum of waisted bolts.

Try a Google image search for keel bolt corrosion.

yes that is the keel joint. hunter at some point changed the fiberglass stub ad made it shorter. this made the keel taller but it had the same draft. either way is really fine, except your bilge is deeper than the later ones, like mine.

i have read that some people say yours is better due to how the fiberglass flexes when you touch bottom.

i dont know but you should strip the paint, dig out that ever they tried to fill the joint with and refill and paint the bottom. if only for looks, or to see if any water has gotten in the joint
