Question Electrical System Ground

I'm in the process of refitting a 1975 Morgan 250 Classic and am installing electrical components. I seem to have it under control, but am baffled by where I should ground the system on board to the boat. I have a very shallow bilge, and if you know this boat, you'll recall that the keel is retractable. There are some fittings controlling the retractable keel, but I just cannot find any copper plates or screws in the keel area that I can connect the ground cable to. Can I just drill down into the center of the lead keel and attach it there? I'm stumped.....
