Replacing Tank Vents

I am in the process of replacing the forward water tank vent in my 200 Catalina 380…After some research, including input/advice from the group; I did the following:

  1. Installed a 10 “ circular inspection port on the starboard side of the anchor locker;
  2. Replaced broken vent with a new perko 5/8” vent with 90 degree bend (where vent pipe attached to vent hose).

I looked into a plastic forespar vent but they did not come with a bend on the inside of the hull…I was concerned abut a kink in the water tank vent hose after connecting with the vent.   The perko vent appeared to be an exact replacement for the broken vent.

Good luck!
