If water is coming from the boat, it seems the crack is really bad. It is best to remove the keel and check the extent of the crack. Although the bolts might be responsible, the crack is connected to these holes, which means the crack is extending to the top. If this is the situation the boat should be getting water from this crack. Remove the keel, repair the crack by welding if possible, check the top connection and weld the top also. Although the position of the crack might not cause mechanical problems (breaking of the keel) it is best to be on the safe side.
