Ok down to brass tacks. I decided I was going to visually inspect the rest of the keel joint. This required me removing the fiberglass from the keel. Not too hard as it had gotten water inside and was loose from the lead. Was able to remove it fairly easily with a prybar. The entire joint with the exception of the leading edge was still well sealed.in going to repair the leading edge and seal the outside of the keel joint with epoxy, then eyeglass and repaint it. Should be good for another 35 years.
