Had a look at the boat today (she’s been on a mooring for a couple of weeks). No trace of water in the forward buoyancy compartment, but a fair bit in the main section. So I doubt the keelstrap screws are the problem as presumably they would leak all along the length of the boat?
No takers on the idea of a hatch in the floor? I envisage something like a 4″ inspection hatch set underneath the thwart, port side. This should be close enough to the lowest part of the boat to allow me to pump her dry; it also seems like quite a protected spot that is less likely to be stood on. I am also somewhat hopeful of being able to effect a repair on the damaged part of the hull once I have this access point.
