Or is there another way to clean this line out?

I don't know if it was the best way, but that's what we did: disconnect it from the inside and send a blast of the water hose up through it. All kinds of gunk came out the other end onto the deck so it worked.

I don't know if it's typical, but on our boat the vent hose on the outside is inside a stanchion so it was easier doing it from the inside out.
