Winter storage on Great Lakes

Is there any long term difference between storing a boat on jackstands instead of on a cradle? I bought my first boat in July and want to do what I can to keep it a long time. It's a 1985 S32. I know there are cost differences, but some of that would be offset by being able to do my own maintenance and upgrades in a heated storage space. But are there any other considerations?

Is a hull less stressed by going directly onto jackstands for winter storage, rather than being loaded on a cradle and bumping along the road as it's driven to a further away storage location? And will being in a heated building over winter extend the life or reduce overall maintenance costs?
