As long as your insurance allows winter lay-up and the marina water is protected from freezing, there is no disadvantage. The need to dry out a SOUND hull each year is a myth, the paint and zincs can be renewed in a short-haul in the Spring (if necessary). If the marina loses electricity, which is possible, it's reasonable it will be repaired LONG before substantial ice could build up.
About the only reason we haul in RI is to bottom paint every other year and properly dissassemble and lube the seacocks
