Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Marc Van de Velde, MNI: Hull penetrations, a fitting is something fit on the hull (skin ??), and a penetration is an opening through the hull. These openings are subject to regular inspections, that's why they show up in an insurance document.

hull penetrations

I suppose this is a translation of a shipping (= non-yachting) related document. On ships, one speaks of the hull, not skin nor anything else.
