There is no reason not to have a water tank vent inside the boat. For one thing salt water will not have a chance to get into the tank. The S&S Swans had the vent going into the galley sink. A friend has his vent going to just below the overhead in his Spencer 35 at the main bulkhead - as long as there is a manual pump in the system the water will go into the sink before it gets to the vent top.

I agree the vent routed into the sink may not be the best idea. The vent that is at the top of the bulkhead only emits air though and is not an overflow. Any overflow exits through the manual pump into the sink(s).

Here is a pic showing the Swan 44 vents at the right corner of the sink.
