We are mid-bay on the Chesapeake and leave our boat in for the winter. We do our haul-out in mid-summer, for 2-4 weeks typically.
Depending on where you haul for the winter, you are at the mercy of other boats and schedules for getting re-launched, especially if you are stacked behind a few rows of boats. By staying in, you can get the late autumn and early spring sailing.
Ice has not been an issue. We have a full boat cover, so snow isn't either. The mid/late-summer haul-out dries the boat nicely and gets us back in the water with a fresh clean bottom for the best part of the sailing season -- autumn.
