GS 39 Fuel Tank Vent Line

I've been having trouble for a long time in fueling the boat. The tank fill hose backs up unless I go exceedingly slow (ten minutes to put in 20 gallons). It's clear to me that the vent line is plugged--it doesn't appear to be "crimped" anywhere that I can see it. I've cleared it at the outlet end. Now I'm thinking of replacing the copper tubing with fuel line hose. Has anyone out there dealt with this? If so, how did you manage to run a new line since it is so hard to access the space under the main cabin sole?

Thanks,

Cam
