T30 anchor locker (or lack thereof)

My new-to-me Tartan 30 has what appears to be a perfect anchor locker up front, but no access to the deck. Seems like a pretty simple job to cut a hole in the deck and install a hawse pipe. I'd probably also want to do some sort of drainage, and support at the base of the locker for the chain. But before I break out the sawz-all and carve into my pristine deck, figured I'd check with my fellow Tartanites. Couple questions:

Do all T30's have no access like this?

Any problems with my plan to carve a hole and install a hawse pipe?

If I simply drill a drain hole in the bottom of the anchor locker, which appears to be part of the inner hull liner, will it just drain to the bilge? Or do I need to get fancier with a drain line?

Any other words of wisdom on this subject?

Thanks
