You will be given lots of different solutions to this question ;-)
 
My routine is
 
1) Wire brush / grind the rust out -  back to bare metal if needs be
2) Treat with a rust killer as per product instructions
3) Apply multiple coats of epoxy paint over the affected area
4) Antifoul
 
Looks like your original epoxy coating has been damaged through the keel being in contact with the ground.

Thanks! And you might be right about the original coating, because the rust appear on several spots.

Best regards Peter
