aft bilge access...?

Ok, I've got a newbie question. This is my first sailboat so there probably will be a few stupid questions from this end. Thanks in advance for yalls patience. (I do use the search function a lot)

A bit of background... I bought a 77 islander 28 and I need to replace the two transom thru-hull fittings (ventalation and exhaust), as well as the impeller on the water pump. the only entry path I can see is the port cockpit locker. Is that correct? Is there another way into the aft bilge? I'm a pretty big guy (6'0-250) and its a helluva tight squeeze.

Also, any recomendations/sources on an upgraded fitting to replace the (non) existing ones?
