Cal 39-Internally Ballasted?

Simple question: 1971 Cal 39, is it internally ballasted or bolt on keel?

I'm pretty sure it's a bolt on keel based on some internet research. Never seen one out of the water in person though.

sailingfool will become famous soon enough
It's a safe bet that any Cal has a bolt-on fin keel.

cal 39 keel

I've had my 1979 out of the wate a couple of times, the keel is not a bolt on as far as I can tell. It's totally glassed into the hull.

Apparently it was encapsulated.
