What type of thru-hulls are these?

Hello all,

I've just started a refit on an Paceship Northwind; an old, but sturdy girl!

I've never done anything like this with Fiberglass boats before, or of boats this size so I appreciate any advise at all...

I am replacing all my thru-hulls with new bronze units. All but three of the thru-hulls onboard are of the standard type that are held in with a nut. The three that I am confused about look like this:

These two units are located in my head. The third one is under the galley.

How do I go about removing and replacing these? Is there suppose to be a nut under the fiberglass built up around it?
