Air Floor Dink on Davits?

Normally I hang my RIB's from davits with the bow higher so if it rains, the water will drain out the stern.

I now have a 12 foot Saturn soft bottom inflatable boat with an air floor.

Can this be hung on davits without folding up or causing damage?

We do it all the time. Just leave stern lower. It can lose air over extended time and the boat will want to fold, especially if there is water. Ours hangs from the dinghy transom and bow towing rings.

Thanks
That is how I have done it before with wooden floor boards.
I figured as much.
I haven't tried hanging the new-to-me dink from my davits yet. Been to busy with other projects, visiting family, etc. I have been playing with it though.
