Which to be fair it does look like it has been in the image.
But it must have come unstuck at some point for the water to gerrin?

Two holes on the bow are closed, so from where this water came in?
I hope it's not there "forever"....

Should I make a hole in the reservoir to let the water go?
and should I open holes on bow?

If that fibreglass bowl is meant to act as a buoyancy tank with an open top, then I can't really see it doing much good. Did they forget to put a lid on, or bond it to the underside of the deck? If the remainder of the hull floods, then its no wonder water has sloshed around and got into that compartment.

I think it is supposed to be bonded to the underside of the deck.

From the sounds of it the nostrils are closed off, maybe the hole in the stern too?
