I think I will obtain a reduction in vibrations just because that area is super strong now.

It looked quite flat in the pics ...

Perhaps there was "oil canning" on the sides of the old keel?

The reshaping of the area ahead of the prop has been tested. I will say it exceeded my expectations. The boat is quieter with hardly any vibrations at cruising speed. The bonus I was hoping for was a boat that could back nicely. I can now back up with the rudder straight and continue to go back straight. Before this project I was always avoiding backing up the boat was horrible at it. Thanks for everyone's words of encouragement.

Funangler, Thanks for the follow-up and congratulations on a successful modification. Those are the best kind.
