No big deal unless it's from looseness or damage. Some boats are just built that way...the marine business being what it is...

if it is encapsulated, make sure there is no water damage -sometimes water gets between the fiberglass and the ballast inside and bulging happens----

no water in the keel but she was flooded many years, why I needed to change floors.

This is important to me as I intend putting legs on here, she will sit on her keel at low tide.

If it is loose there will be a weeping crack...except on a trailer the crack might close up because the keel is being pushed into the boat rather than hanging....

From the pics, I'd say it's just built crooked. Check the bolts on that ballast. And get busy with the sandpaper....
