Mast step bracket fills with water

Hi
My 1980 C&C 34 mast step bracket on the keel is black metal, and fills up with condensation around the base of the mast around the shims, in the settee
Should it have a hole in it somewhere that may be plugged over the years, as it is tough to clean and impossible to really see inside,
Can I drill a stategic hole to let it drain into the bilge.
Always like to think twice and ask once before drilling a hole in my boat.
