Michigan boats get covered with snow and ice every year.
I'm sure that damage could occur but I wouldn't worry too much. As long as the ice has room to expand, it will. That's why my plastic ice cube trays don't crack everytime I use them.
Those grand fresh-water seas of ours - Erie, and Ontario, and Huron, and Superior, and Michigan, - possess an ocean-like expansiveness...They contain round archipelagoes of romantic isles...they have heard the fleet thunderings of naval victories...they know what shipwrecks are, for out of sight of land, however inland, they have drowned full many a midnight ship with all its shrieking crew. --from Moby Dick
