Where to put inspection ports in a Minifish

OK, so I have acquired a Minifish. The hull is in good shape, but is rather heavy. I plan to install some inspection ports in it to see if I can dry it out. Were it a Sunfish, I would
put a 6" port on the deck centered between the aft "V" of the splashrail and the forward edge of the daggerboard trunk and a second 4" port centered on the aft deck
about 3" forward of the transom. Would this plan on a Minifish work or are there big foam blocks or other fiberglass structures that would argue for putting the ports elsewhere? If so, where should I install the ports? Must admit I do not know what the inside of a Minifish looks like.
