I'm pretty sure that's a swing keel, drawing between 1-4 feet. It's probably lowered by a winch under the cockpit sole. Makes trailering much easier!

On most tailor boats they swing up into the hull for fitting on the trailer and for trimming. Many bigger boats have swing keels but will have more stub under the boat since they won't be pulled up on a trailer so they may have variable draft, could be say 4 feet keel up and 8 feet down.

Congrats! Bunch of those San Juan 21's in our area as they were built here (New Bern) in the 70's. Most of the guys race 'em....good boats from my understanding, yea, swing keel.
