NdN is on a distinguished road
If the through hull is bronze, it is soft enough to use a hammer and chisel to cut from the OD of the flange (outside the hull) to the ID. Sounds scary but it works quickly and easily. Bend up the tabs that you create after a few of these cuts and you can push the entire assembly, through hull, seacock, etc. into the hull. Fill hole as shown.
