I also re-plumbed the sanitation system with trident sanitation hose, boat still had odor until I started using Fresh Water to flush. I read somewhere the hose odor is from decaying micro organisms in the salt water dying among other things.
Anyway, I had to replace holding tank due to a leak at lower 1 1/2" outlet, found direct replacement at Plasticwatertanks.com in Calif. They were great to work with, new tank $195.00. and fast delivery to NY. Good luck with your boat, we have had ours three seasons, going on four, have done quite a bit of work on her, but worth it, great sailing boat ! I like your sailing plans also, hope to see you in the NE.

Thanks Ray, that's brilliant. I was thinking this morning of how I would run a new freshwater line to the head without the risk of it becoming contaminated at a "T", but this is infinitely easier and sensible and won't feel like I am wasting water in the tanks.

This thread may be turning into a smell reduction theme, but after you do all you are talking about—I would recommend that you take advantage of the plumbing of your T37 to rid yourself of the smell. If you flush the head regularly with fresh water and NEVER leave the thing full of salt water for more than a day or two and if you can get folks to be sure to flush it well (not just to the point that the pee and poo disappears) you will have a sweet smelling boat. You are probably right to replace stuff if the previous owner let stuff sit in it, but fresh water flush is the key. Just fill the sink with the sink through hull fitting closed and pump the head with the head discarge open. The sink water (you can even use left over wash water if you are cruising) I believe most Tartans came from the factory with this arrangement of plumbing for a reason.
My head does not smell and i have had my boat for 26 years. I have put high quality sanitary hose, but I am not convinced that did anything.
