Thru-Hull, Flanged Adapter Plate & Bron

Thru-Hull, Flanged Adapter Plate & Bron

This picture shows the complete assembly minus the boats hull. Note that the handle clearly states Marine Rated. Use only Marine UL rated valves and seacocks for below water line applications.


Many insurance companies demand this for coverage and insist on marine rated valves so don't cut corners here.

What if the hull is only 1/2"thick, would you cut off the extra length so the flange is in contact with the hull. I have never seen this issue addressed and I have read posts about thru hulls and flanged adapters. Also would you thread it together dry or plumbing tape, or pipe dope.

Can this be used i=on aluminum boats as well? I want to install a wash down pump on my jet boat but want to ensure safety first and foremost/

THIS IS MAKING ME CHECK MY HULL TOMORROW.
The question i have with the separate flange system is that could adding a second joint into the equation add to the risk of springing a leak? i know from my attempts at home plumbing that the fewer joints the better!!!!
