Sealing the stub / keel joint (the smile)

Lead keel/ fiberglass stub about 6 feet long.

I'm getting conflicting info re: glassing or not glassing the stub/keel joint. I see a lot of them glassed, but yard is claiming it will just crack.

What's worked for you?

Further info ...

Bolts will be torqued.
There is no water intrusion from the seam.
It is not an encapsulated keel.
I see plenty of non encapsulated keel/stub joints glassed with a couple layers of bi-axial.

Late 80s' Cal.

The limited info I've been able to find re: similar boats which had dropped their keels for inspection revealed the bolts were OK.

G/flex 650 is the approach I'll use.
