If you through bolted, then it probably doesn't matter much... if you used screws to hold the seacock to the starboard, then it might matter... I don't know how well 5200 sticks to Starboard... If the new through hulls are replacing old ones, they may not have had backing plates and may have a flat surface because the manufacturer designed in a solid fiberglass (not cored) section for the through-hulls specifically at that point in the hull. The interior on most hulls is curved, and from your description, it sounds like that may be the what the maker did.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
