Keel Replacement on Trailer

Hello There. I just bought a 76 Chrysler 22 on Saturday. I got her home and immediately noticed the keel damage (steel cable replaced with rope, dent in keel pocket, slight water stains by the keel bracket). I looked at my trailer and it looks like I could remove my axles (by unbolting the leaf springs) and raising the rest of the trailer on four jack stands. I'm not looking for someone to say that this is fool proof but has anyone tried this method? I have attached a photo to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.

Also, I see a lot of old ads with people taking about mass production of keel brackets. Is anyone currently doing this? Thank you and I look forward to learning more about this boat
