Thru--hull base on curved hull

So what does one do when you have a thru-hull base trying to be set on a curved hull area? Do you just 4200 the hell out of it to make up the curved area?

I bought the Groco pre-made base for my 1 1/2" thru hull which sits a tad starboard under the v-berth. I'll be using the flange adaptor on the base with a ballcock.

Re: Thru--hull base on curved hull

Probably a good idea to build up the inside with glass or a piece of wood to flatten the surface. I'd carefully make a spacer, maybe make a curved fiberglass spacer for the outside as well if it's really a sharp curve rather than depend on 5200. A 1-1/2" thru hull could probably use a bit of extra hull thickness anyway.

Hey, here in the Adirondacks we only get one day of summer... on the 4th of July. The rest is winter:-)
