Our boats came with a vented loop installed port side of vee birth behind the cubby.  You can access by removing drawers or better removing the panel wall in back of cubby. Peace of mind suggests this is a good idea. Chuck FinnMighty Quinn #114Great Lakes

The head on our '84 Catalina 38 is about 3" below the waterline.  We're replacing the old Head Mate toilet with a Jabsco Twist 'n' Lock compact toilet.  There is no vented loop on the 3/4" inlet or 1 1/2" discharge hose.  We have lived with this condition for
 35 years and the boat is still floating!  We just make sure the lever is in the dry bowl position when the toilet is not in use, and we close the seacocks when we leave the boat for longer times.  The manuals for both the old and new toilets say it is absolutely
 necessary to have these vented loops to 8" above the waterline on both the inlet and discharge lines.  Does anyone have an opinion on this?
