My original thru hull fittings look to be bronze pipe glassed into the hull.  I plan to replace these with new thru hull fittings as it is unknow how strong they are.  Has anyone ground out these "pipe" thru hulls and replaced with a typical mushroom type?

I helped grind out one on a Cole 43. After we started we realised it was recessed so we ended up letting the professionals remove it. They come out normally but the risk of damaging the hull when they are recessed is too great.

Removed one from Boomaroo a few months ago because it turned in the hull when I tried to unscrew the old seacock.

The hull was flush outside because the flange was recessed into it.
Had to grind the filler and the flange off to remove it.

The fitting was in good condition otherwise which gave me confidence in the other 6 remaining.
