English term or phrase:through hull log
Sorry, not much more context but I have found the following which may help more technically minded people!
...describes a technique for constructing a fiberglass hull involving "the laying-up of a number of layers of resin impregnated glass fibers in a preformed female mold. In this manner a laminate of a number of layers of glass fibers is formed to the precise configuration desired for the hull of the boat." While the Blount patent shows a hull having a shaft log that goes through the hull of the boat to receive the propeller shaft, the patent does not describe how a hole is drilled or otherwise formed in the hull to accommodate the shaft log."
