Not a lot of DIYers around in my town.. Thanks for all the help !
Definitely sandblast the keel, then immediately solvent wipe it and coat it with epoxy resin. This has been discussed in detail on the link below.

Thank you ! Sandblaster rental was more affordable than expected (incl. delivery of the compressor), getting ready to clean these bumps and rust patches before applying the new barrier coat. Tech. Service from manufacturer was very helpful and said new barrier on hull can be applied on old one as long as it is sanded and solvent cleaned !
