Gross problem

My plumbing is plugged. I can't get my macerator working - it powers up and starts to slow down, down, and eventually stalls and throws the breaker. I can't imagine what's in there except maybe someone at the boatyard where I had the shaft log fixed tossed something nasty into the head. I now have a full holding tank and can't discharge. Guess I'll have to find a pump-out, but the line to the macerator is a separate one, and I really, really don't want to have to take this apart.

Anyone have any brilliant ideas/tricks for unplugging a clogged holding tank-macerator hose?
