Fresh water tank vent location options

Hi all,
I tried searching on this, and just couldn't find results amidst all the threads on holding tanks, vents, etc. If there's a link or something that I should read, please let me know.

On our 1984 Sabre 34, we have two fresh water tanks under each settee. Each has a vent line that runs forward, where they are T'd together under the V-berth, and then vented into the anchor locker.

I may need to move that anchor locker vent location due to some modifications in that area, and I'm wondering if I can choose a different location for the fresh water vent. Are there other options? Best practices for freshwater vent location and/or design? Other common locations on monohulls (if it differs on catamarans)?

I looked through most of the books I own, and the best I cold find was that there should be vents, and that's about it. Any thoughts on this?
Thanks,
J
