boat type

Sail drive

Here is a photograph of the sail drive on the boat I purchased in the fall. Is this pitting of the surface galvanic corrosion?
What do I need to do to repair this?

Thanks.

keel cracks

I have cracks visible in the aft area where the keel joins the hull. The keel nuts are encapsulated and everything there seems to be in good shape.
What is the best way to repair this?
