I have always had my boats hauled for the winter. Except for the winter of 2007. That's when I was a two boat owner - I was trying to sell a Newport 28, and I had bought my O'day 35 in December 07. I paid for the Newport to be hauled, but left the O'day in the water.
I hated having the boat in water! Every time a storm blew through I was worried sick. I thought I would go sailing a few times, but the boat was in a slip and it was such a hassle to get in / out of the slip that I only went out once. Then, to top it off, I moved from a slip to the side of a dock, and a dock line broke in a storm and the stern got damaged.
Wet storage was 2/3 the cost of dry storage, but I won't do it again. Instead, I'll sail on WanderingStar when John wants to go out!
