You did not specify what you think is non-compliant about this installation. Which part of it would not pass down in Fla. ?
These are generally the same materials that are used on Long Island and many places I have noticed. We use Copper SE and conduit to protect the SE cable up to 8' off the ground though (Utility requirement). And the 2 hole strap must be closer to the SE weatherhead. A bit more height too ...
That connector should have a rubber insert in it and is supposed to be watertight without the sealer, but we've always used Ducseal in this same manner.

Assuming proper height on the drip loop, it would be compliant here...
However, I don't like SEU, especially with Aluminum... Water tends to enter the hub regardless of attempts to stop it. It will corrode the terminals, especially the neutral, and if the disco is mounted directly below, the main CB and/or neutral in the disco will become corroded relatively quickly as well.
I like PVC when GRC isn't needed to penetrate a roof for a mast, and I prefer to mount my discos side-be-side to the meter can.
Just from my experince... Results may vary.
