I think the risk of leaving the boat plugged in, out way the risk of not. SO many boats sink at the dock
. It is actually surprising to see some of the numbers. If you have water
ingress while docked and unattended, you at least have a chance of your bilge
pumps handling it without dying from draining the batteries.
Oh yeah, most battery
life is determined by the number of cycles. Minimizing this number helps prolong life, or in this case determines life.
