Replace Forward Fresh Water Vent

From Len Cardoza, Edelweiss C380 #232:

I could not access the broken (inside) piece of the forward water vent earlier this year.  I ended up with buying a 10” inspection port;  carefully measured out the area for the port on the starboard side of the anchor locker; used a multifunction oscillating power tool with narrow cutting blade to cut the hole…leaving room to finish same with the sanding tool.   I was able to  access and replace the vent (ordered from Defender).  Hope this helps!insp-port-fwd water-vent-10_15

On my boat the old vent basically disintegrated and the outside portion fell off. From the V-berth I was able to reach up alongside the anchor locker and grab the vent hose and pull the remnants out and back where I could work on it.   I then removed the old fitting, added an additional length of hose with a barbed coupling
