I put a nylon thru-hull in my transom, fed the fuel line through it, and filled all of the space with silicone strategically placed to both prevent water from coming in from a following sea (it was well above WL), and to prevent chafe on the fuel line. I had way over 4' of hose, (maybe 10'?), and at least a 18" rise from the fuel tank and never had problem.
It was not the prettiest "customization" I did, but as it was a F/V function was more important than form.
