Water in Gas (tristar 220)

I have the same problem with my '89 220. I get enough water in my tank every couple weeks to cause my boat to stop working and for the life of me cant figure it out. It has to be the vent, I smell no gas leaking from the tank so I don't believe there is a leak.

Is it really that the vent is pulling in enough water to cause this issue? Do I simply need to put a high enough P trap on it to prevent water from back flowing in to the tank?

One other question, is there supposed to be a cover over the vent on the side of the boat? I simply have an open hole with a screen.... Am I missing a cover?

Thanks for any help.
