1972 MKII keel removal

Can the keel from a 1972 Columbia Mk II be removed so the boat can be put on a normal trailer. If it is possible, what is involved.

Re: 1972 MKII keel removal

At A yard it will costs several thousand to drop/rebed the keel, The keel is bolted on/engeneering caulked and all the caulk mut be ground and removed, then the nuts come off the studs, most of which will be rusty and need replacing after its dropped, then it had to be separated using force. Lots! Its a huge job and spendy.
