Here are the measurements.

Flush mount.
inside dia: 1 1/2"
thread dia: 1 5/8"
(no surprises there)
Flange dia: 2 7/16"
flange height: roughly 2/8"
roughly 2/8" on the 45 degree flush angle
again with the 2/8" from the 45 angle to the pipe.

hell, does that make sense? I am so ready to be in the know.

So I keep searching and searching but, no go with matching measurements.
my hull is countersunk to 2 1/2" but all the flush thru-hulls out there have a 2 7/8" flange. Does there exist in the universe a counter sinking tool designed to expand my mounting holes to a sweet 45 degree angle? Google is failing me. I'm tired of living on the hard. help me!.

Sounds like an Aerosmith song. "Living on the hard"

Gil,

Why not use a router with a ball bearing - 45 degree chamfer bit? It may not be perfect since you have to follow the hull, but it will be pretty close.
If you wanted it perfect you have to make a templet for the router out of a peice of plywood, shim and hot glue it the hull - making it perpendicular and centered to the hole.

Gil,

Clean the old ones up with a brass wheel on a drill or grinder. If there are no pink spots and they are a traditional bronze color re-use them..

Gil...if none of that works out, you could build out with an epoxy slurry and fair to the hull, then mount any comparable standard mushroom head on there, or re-bevel to a different flush mount.
