    Excellent points. I recall a speaker at Chicago's Strictly Sail" show.  His
    gripe being that J boats  (racing--mostly) come standard with flush
    through-hull fittings, while $100K to 300K boats do not.  Who needs the
    extra drag?  Cost per fitting to move from proud to flush in his
    estimation--$1 each.  Maybe $5-$10 total.  His point, until we complain en
    masse the marine industry won't change.
    Playing devil's advocate, perhaps the proud fitting is less prone to failure
    given a flange that prevents it from sliding into the salon and watering
    down the champagne?
