I don't think LI Sound is more windy in Winter than Lake Champlain, but probably more than Annapolis. That being said, the issue - as you know - is safety. With the boat immovable in a cradle, the stress on the step and surounding areas is pretty unconventional (can be considerable) when the mast moves about in a stationary boat. I'm going to Dutch Warf on Thursday AM to go over some winter stuff and can push on the subject if you'd like. Send me a PM.
