Scupper and drainage

Hey everyone,

So I live in the great NW and right we are seeing about an inch of rain per day. I've noticed my scuppers are a bit clogged and now I'm getting standing water in the cockpit. I'm also quite sure the bilge (which others have said uses a float to push water out automatically) is not performing its job. My question is:

How can I gain access to the lowest area of the hull and really guage what the water is like down there? Also, does anyone have a proper cutaway image of the C22 to give me a better understanding of just where everything goes down there?

I do have the sink along the starbrd side with the sink drainage meeting the scupper tubes where the keel crank is.

Thanks for any and all help!
