I re-plumbed the head on Grey Goose in 2013 using Sealand Odorsafe hose with some hard PVC in places. Very happy. The hose is not cheap. Getting it on fittings was a LOT easier with heat and a finger-smear of dish soap. If you use PVC, be sure to use primer and cement to get a good seal.

Best thing I did for my head setup was to plumb the head sink drain to allow the head to be flushed with fresh water from the head sink. Decaying sea critters really smell. A small ball valve gives me the option of flushing with raw water if I choose.
