Leaving boat cushions out all the time, the type that are long, and curved and made to fit the cockpit area of seating all around? In my personal experience I keep them below for fear they will get taken, but not returned. If not taken, the sun will wash out the color and in a heavy wind, they will blow away. The rain will water log them and destroy the cushioning inside the covers, so to perserve your investment it might be best to store them below when they are not in use. I ususally sit on one of the throw-over for "man overboard" cushions. It is thicker, smaller, and has great handles for hanging up anywhere and staying there in the wind when I am not sitting on it. If it goes overboard, at least they are inexpensive enough to replace at a wallmart store. Just some ideas.....
