The keel, or keels, provide the righting moment for the boat. The keel counteracts the force of the wind on the mast. If you remove one, you should remove the other.
Looks like a nice boat.
From the picture, I suspect that the keel is encapsulated in glass, and therefore part of the hull. Removing it may involve the use of a reciprocating saw.
