I agree, there could be some extra back pressure there, but probably not much. The bigger concern to me is back-siphoning when the engine is not running, especially with overtaking, following seas.
Do you have a seacock at the thru-hull for the raw water engine exhaust? If so, it would be good to close that when you're not running the engine, even if you have a vented loop. Hang your engine keys on the thru-hull handle so you don't forget to open it before starting the engine.
If you don't have a seacock there, you really should consider adding one, since it's now a below-the-waterline through-hull.
How's the boat doing with all the weight? Have you noticed a loss of performance?
