A bigger issue is chafe of the running rigging. Just go through a yard in the winter when the wind is up and listen to the halyards slapping and rubbing. Some people (usually racers with hi-tech lines) will pull them out and leave light messengers to pull them back in the spring. I usually just attach them at the bow pulpit or some other point away from the mast to avoid slap and chafe.
