New member - bilge question

Hi all,
new member here and have a new to me 2003 150CC.
I splashed it for the first tie today and ran it about an hour and it sat in the water probably another 30 minutes. So being that it's new to me, one of the things I like to do is keep an eye on the bilge for water getting in.
As you all know, the bilge is divided by a center stringer. I noticed the left(port) side was almost dry, but the right side had water accumulating, and by the time I was taking the boat out of the water, there was about an inch to inch and half deep water. My question is, is there a hole anywhere in that center stringer that will let the water get to left side so the bilge pump can pump it out? Or do I need to install a second bilge pump in the right side, which with the very limited working room without removing the splash well I really don't want to do that.
Thank you for the help.
