pvc in through hulls

The survey on my 79 Islander says it has pvc fitting into thru hulls. On inspection I found grey elbows etc, I'm assuming these were factory installed. Has anyone found the same thing and have you replaced them or have any of these failed.

I have a grey plastic part, also an elbow, and I think it is as old as the boat, 20years. Seems to be fine. I am in the process of replacing some plastic thruhulls because the survey said there was a concern. After fighting like crazy to get them out I determined there was no problem they just looked rough after years in the Florida sun.

So while I think the plastic is fine I am considering replacing more so that it matches the new ones than thinking there is anything wrong with it.

It has no cracks of visual signs of problems.
