Don't have a boat yet, I'm asking just to gain a little knowledge.

Attended several of the seminars at Trawler Fest in Balt., understand deductibles are going up for wind damage.
I had the same trawler style, see avatar, for 25 years and removed the canvas, ALL OF IT, for every storm, every. Never lost canvas.

I cannot think of a reason to leave it on, well one, get the insurance company to buy new for me.
Of course this is my opinion and YMMV.

It would be pretty much a "gut-feeling" call for me, since I have no comprehensive insurance on the boat. I think that with estimated winds above 50 mph I would take the canvas down, and at less than that I would probably leave it up and hope for the best, since there is a certain amount of hassle in taking it all down.
