No problems at all with ventilation.
thanks! good to hear that straight from a sister-ship.

Keeping the boat cool in Connecticut when it is 85 degrees out is one thing, keeping the boat cool in the tropics when the water temp is a lot higher is a bit tougher.

But hatches with a directed flow through them works better than opening ports. A windscoop as Faster suggested works well.

You think YOU have big ports?

Things could be worse! I have smaller windows than this on my house! I don't get it...don't boarding seas board Junks? Guess this is strictly a Bay Junk! Killer views and ventilation though!

Shutters as in Storm Shutters on a house Like in those books about preparing for offshore traveling. I haven't seen them, but I think you take them on and off. Probably some real innovative ways and designs.
