Looks bad to me. In a pinch, you could pull the valve off the thru hull fitting itself and see how bad it looks. If not bad, perhaps twist on a new valve and get your week in. Then deal with the thru hull later. These typically have mismatched NPT to NPS threads, so addressing it correctly, at some point, would be wise. This requires replacing the mushroom fitting and is a bit more time consuming.

I’ve replaced every one of the thru hulls and valves on every penetration (8) below the waterline. The rest are drains at the waterline to be done eventually.
