Cockpit Drains C-27

In my recently acquired 1985 C-27 that spent the last 5 years on the hard, I believe I have a hose off one of my cockpit drains (water in the bildge unless the cockpit is tarped and no visible cracks or holes). I find that I do not have the flexibility of Houdini to crawl in through the port access panel, not to mention physical body size not ment to be folded, spindled and mutulated. I am thinking of removing the bulkhead in the quarter birth, or a panel in the stern lazurette. What is the best way, need to check all plumbing and fittings any way. Positive insight is appreciated.

Situation resolved, panel below propane tank exposes through hull. Bad hose - no more leaks.

a few ppl at my yacht club were talking about taking a sawz all to the entry way into the area behind the engine. You could make an access but would need a way to support it when ppl are in the cockpit, like wooden braces.

I just replaced the drain hoses in my 1987 C-27. All you need to do is flip up the rear seat and pull up the access panels to gain access to all the fittings on the stern of the boat. Let me know if you need any advice.
