What would you do with this thru hull?

Just bought this boat and its in great shape. The previous owner said he was planning on plugging this thru hull. It currently is a plastic thru hull with a hose and cork with a hose clamp on it. Its above the waterline in the very rear of the boat. When I got the bottom paint, I asked the boat yard to patch it while it was out. They missed it. They said they would take it out of the water, patch it with fiberglass and repaint it for a $200. My question is should I? If not, why not and what is it for???? I have to tell the boat yard tomorrow morning if I want them to do it...now that I look at it, it looks very mickey mouse to me, but its been that way for at least 5 years without a problem. the boat yard says they can get "close" to the paint match, but if I want it perfect it'll be an additional $200. Thoughts? Advice? If it were your boat???

I'd leave it until next year's haulout.

I would leave it in place, but replace that bit of hose and plug with a Marelon valve.

Also, are those cable ties on the thru-hull behind the one in question?!?!?!? Even on an above-the-waterline thru-hull that would make me more than a little nervous.

Sorry, plastic thru-hulls make me nervous. Even Marelon thru-hulls make me wonder, even though I am told that they are acceptable to ABYC.

When we hauled out this spring, I replaced a plastic elbow on our main thru-hull with bronze.

I guess you have to weigh the cost of having the marina do the work against the potential cost of having it fail.

If there haulen it out for free and $200 for the repair I'd fix it. I like my boat on top of the water.
