We very rarely close the companionway hatch and almost never have the drop boards in when onboard. The Womboat also has two good dorade type vents, an opening port in the aft quarter berth plus two small hatches which we leave open permanently over the head (which is aft opposite the quarter berth and galley) and the galley which open under the dodger. other hatches are open depending on the weather or sea conditions.
