If you do a search on Google for a cal 24 there is a link to cal boats/Jenson Marine. there is a line drawing of an earlier version with a swing keel.
Sorry I cannot post the link, not enough posts yet.

Of course, if you get down on the ground with a flashlight and look up into the slot, you should be able to see the swing keel if it is there.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Somewhere along the line it should be mentioned that a centerboard can be a good thing but it is also "moving parts located under the water line".

If it IS in there, you should find a way to support the boat that also allows you to drop the keel/board while it is in the yard. You'll need to clean out the slot that it resides in, check the lifting wire (synthetic line is a good alternative these days for some), and use bottom paint in there as well as on the board, to discourage more critters from growing and jamming your board up in the slot.
