I'm not from Florida and I know the winds are high there. However, I use to build a lot of houses (worked on a framing crew for 5 yrs while in high school and college and remodeled houses) and it is common to leave about a 2" open gap on each side of the ridge line to install the ridge vent. I am willing to say the gap does not reduce the strength of the system at all. The ridge vent does extend the life of the roofing material and in some cases the plywood itself.
