Beneteau 461 keel / bolts / hull

Hi All,
Just wondering if there are any bene 461 owners out there that might share photos of their aft keel bolts - have just picked up a 461 for a good price but suspect there has been some repairs made…
The heads of the bolts are not great.. that’s not my main concern for now.. it’s the glassing aft.
Coupled with this is what looks like possible gelcoat repairs on the centerline directly fore and aft of keel - about 2 feet each end, under the hull… maybe to cover a mild gelcoat stress crack covered up with gelcoat..
I’m thinking possible grounding or structure repair - given the anti fouling already in place for years, perhaps done years ago adequately, perhaps not.
Does anyone have any photos of the bilge / aft keel bolts of a Beneteau 461 that I can compare with please?
Many thanks!
PS no need unhelpful comments! :-)

Re: Beneteau 461 keel / bolts / hull

Hey Jon, I am quite sure, that this boat have run aground before. You can see, that the Keel have been pushed aft into the hull structure. The mast must be taken off, all the interior removed and than you need to do a major structural repair.

When done correct, the boat can be stronger than before. All the best - Manuel
