Crushed Engine Vents to Stern - Catalina 270

During the survey of the 1994 Catalina 270 I purchased, it was noted that the hose vents from the engine leading out to the stern were crushed between under the aft berth. These vents are the plastic tube with wire support in them.

I opened up the area under the aft berth to examine and fix the problem. What I noticed was the there seems to be no possible way that a 2-3" vent tube is going in a space maybe 1" in height. It seems more a design problem of the boat.

Has anyone else seen this? If so, what can be done to fix the vents short of cutting room in the aft berth wooden covers under the mattress?

Thanks for your help!
Jim

Excellent! Thanks! I didn't know that forum existed. That'll be great for the more specific questions about my boat.
