Continuous blocking on each side of the ridge, nailed to sheathing at
top and connected together at bottom.  Then provide appropriate size and
number of vent holes in the blocking.

How is continuity at the ridge detailed for these? Wouldn't the plywood

need to be set back from the ridge board/beam? We typically show
boundary
nailing into the ridge board/beam.
