Mast step bolts
The lead keel is not under the main mast. I went through this a couple of years ago without much luck but I did determine that if you drill straight down under the port edge of the sink and about a foot forward of the engine room bulkhead, you'll see lead shavings appear when you've drilled down about two inches. I used a large lag screw and connected the ssb ground to it with a hose clamp and it works just great. I'm assuming that your galley sink is against the engine room bulkhead and to the starboard side of the steps as mine is.
