to keep the valves lubed. Question should I go to the trouble of installing a vented loop. I am planing a holding tank
for the aft head which is the maserator type . Cheers Dave .

I presume there is no holding tank; correct?
A key variable is the height of the rim of the toilet bowl above the waterline when heeled to the max (say a bit of toerail under water).
You may feel comfortable relying on closed seacocks or using the pump
as a valve; experience has shown others that this is risky.
What is the height from wateine to the rim of the toilet bowl when heeled?
