Question on water in storage area catalina 22

I just renovated my 1974 catalina 22. Looks great and I remounted all the hardware. I do notice water accumulating in the storage area under the dinette seat that is located towards the bow. It seems to be coming from the enclosure where the swing keel is located. Anyone have any experience with this and how to resolve it?

It may be coming from the L shaped keel lock down screw on the port side of the keel trunk. Mine used to leak after a long time heeled to port. Simple fix was to pack a big wad of plumbers putty around the screw threads. Some owners have removed the keel clamp and sealed off the hole completely. Putty worked fine for me.
