Thanks for the post, I was wondering though the through hull with the flange has to be mounted on wood to get a level surface, and bronze screws need to be drilled through the hull right? Won't there be a leak the screws are going through the hull? Also If the wood gets wet that the ball valve is sitting on it will swell and rot so there won't be a good seal there. Should you use glass instead of wood?
