Med- I'd drill a small hole in the bottom of the keel directly under the hinge to see if more water comes out. If it does then there must be a void in that area. You might be able to figure it out by tapping with a small hammer to determine the size and then drill holes and fill with epoxy, at least that's what I've done on rudders that had water in them. Good luck, wet day to be working under the boat.
