I have a well in middle of floor where fuel tank sits below console. This area is full of water and there is no drain. There is no place to install a bilge pump either. I was wondering if I can drill through to transom. I have not done this but I have to find a way for water drainage. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, drilling a hole so it can drain to the transom drain is fine.  If you do a search, there is a thread on installing transom drain plugs on older Robalos and it talks about how to open the foam up that runs down the centerline to facilitate draining.  Before drilling the hole in the coffin box, see how far you can work the rebar up front.  Hopefully you can reach the bottom of the box.  If so, this makes it so much easier.
