Among the advantages is that you can keep your bottom spotlessly clean, don't have to worry about debris hits, nor worry about rain sinking your boat, and also you can take it home with you in the off season.
OP has small kids, so probably wants to be able to arrive at the boat and start sailing quickly without having to launch. But I'll let him answer for himself.
