Never again, and compounded it by using the weaver davit system.

Inflate/deflate, difficult to swing up and then the bottom pontoon crushes and must pull it up with a line, nope never again.
I would go with a livingston, and use davits to keep it level. It is your transportation and needs to be easy and quick launch.
This is our experience and as always ymmv

want to discuss anchors or religeon now?
