I see two, how is access to the forward most plates (forward lowers I'm assuming)

These Irwin's have chainplates that are yes, simply glassed in. Its not that uncommon. Their are quite a few different boat builders that fastened chainplates this way on at least some of there models. Allied Luders 33, Hans Christian 33, Endurance 35 are just a few that come to mind.
