I had the same problem with my '91 TriStar. Like a previous poster suggested, I rotated the vent towards the stern. Also, after comparing it with some other vents, I realize that the lower lip on the vent was broken off which also allowed the splashing water easier access. For good measure I scrunched up a small piece of rag and stuck it in the vent -- tight enough so it wouldn't fall out but not so tight it prevented air from passing. It wasn't noticeable unless you looked directly at it.
