That's a hard choice. The problem is that you probably don't have anywhere else that the boat can take in any air other than that "exhaust" so if you seal those up, you'll need another place for the motor to get plenty of air.

Does water pour in???? If only a table spoon or something like that gets in I would leave them open.
