I agree I've had the same experience. My biggest concern has always been old petrol in the carbs as the oil will separate. If you can run the engine once a month or so, in my experience again, this mitigates the risk

So my answer is leave it in and run it up until you are ready for the water again, hope that's soon 👍

Or add stabiliser to the tank and fog, disconnect the lines to engine and run it dry while fogging. this gets the engine lubed for winter and stops oil gumming up the carbs.
