I concur with the above comment. I did not find it very difficult, but other may.
It was fun, though perhaps in the next one don't give the number of letters or which letter is to be removed.

I have to agree w/HABS. But it was great to see a new teaser.

Keel is a part of a boat and does not mean to capsize. The phrase 'keel over' means to capsize.
