Depends on where you are and conditions. If your boat stays humid inside, they could be a good place for mold/mildew to take hold. I keep them inside, but I pull late and launch early, so I'm not as likely to get those hotter humid days, buttoned up in the shoulder season.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
