Should I eat it? Hard boiled eggs left in water over night.

I made a bunch of hardboiled eggs, and then left the house for the evening before putting them away (so they were left in the hot water they were cooked in, but the stove off, so they cooled over night).
On the one hand, eggs go bad fast. On the other, they were left in a fairly airtight container (first the shell, then the water).
My inclination is to eat them... so should I?
