I just replaced my holding tank and lines and am wrestling with the same issue. The vent on my tank is 5/8 inch hose that goes up to one of those little silver vents on the topsides just below the hull/deck joint. No way that allows the air to flow correctly in a 5/8 inch hose. What I plan to do is replace that vent fitting with a regular thru-hull so that the maximum amount of air can move freely in and out.
