anchor locker drainage problem

It seems that part of my problem with of intrusion via the anchor locker was due to a cracked bronze pipe fitting that is supposed to hold the drain tube that exits water from the anchor locker out through the bow. In fact the crack severed the tube not leaving enough area to properly hold a new drain tube. Iíve attached a picture of the external rivet looking drain through hull that the cracked tube was attached to. (the gouges in the gel coat came with the boat)

Does anyone know what this part is called and how difficult and/or delicate of a procedure is involved in removing and replacing it?
