X2. And the more vents, the better.
But be prepared for some mold to grow inside over the winter no matter how much of it you get rid of, and how dry you get the boat inside, before covering.
The best way IMHO to cover a boat would be to use canvas, or some other material that "breathes", rather than shrink wrap. We used to do this with our old wooden boat and mold was a minor issue. You can re-use such a cover for many years. A more substantial frame usually is required, but that can also be re-used. More expensive initially, but environmentally responsible.
Having said that, we use shrink wrap now.
