    Default Raft cold weather storage

    I have an Acillies pontoon boat that I would like to bring to Alaska and leave it at my cabin over the winter. Here in Wyoming I let the air out roll it up and store it in a cool but heated area. If i leave it in Alaska it would be in my dry but un-heated Cabin all winter. Will this harm it if it is dry and rolled up not moving it or attempting to inflate it when it is cold?

    The cold shouldn't be a problem, but the rodents might be. Mice will bore holes in boats that are stored and unattended.
