Default Wintering with flush mounted electronics

I was considering flush mounting GPS and VHF on my 23 CC but then I wonder what harm the harsh NE winter will do. Of course the boat will be covered but the temps and humidity changes? Any problems with that or should I bracket mount instead?
Thanks,
John Gov.

I remove mine every winter,thats just me but i do not want to take any chances and it is easy enough to do. Just make up a cover plate to cover cut outs.

If you flush mount the units in a removable panel (or couple panels) of ,say, Starboard, PVC, acrylic or polycarbonate then mount the whole affair over your console dash cut out, winter storage will be very easy & probably a lot better for the electronics than wintering outside.
