Questions about new purchase

Hello All,

I recently bought a 1972 Panther made by Nautical Boat Works it about 14 LOA. Its a sunfish type boat. The question I have is that it has a thruhull fitting that comes up to the back left corner of the cockpit. I'm new to this type of sailboat. When in the water it takes on a ton of water in the hull which complicates dragging it out onto my dock in Canada where I was planning on keeping it in season. Is this the intended design for ballast or do I have some issue?
