The cracks in the keel stub bottom indicate that the keel bolts were incapsulated with a resin (covered over)
If so you would have to dig some out to find the nuts if the bottom is reinforced fiberglass the cracks are serious and would have to be rebuilt
The keel bolts if rusted off could be replaced but it will be expensive

The keel is solid lead with keel bolts cast in. The keel would have to separated from the hull. The bolts would be removed from the lead by cutting out of the lead and replaced very expensive. There are methods to sister in new bolts but would require some engineering and work done by experienced person and not cheap
