I had a 9.9 merc four stroke that I put 25,000 miles on while permanently attached to a RIB on Weaver davits. It rotated up to lie on its port side and a short rope looped on the handle kept it from flopping around. I have about 2000 miles on the 9.9 Yamaha replacement used the same way with no problems. The motors need to be in neutral so they don't tip up. I also use the Dinghy-Mate tank system so I can be underway in a minute. I use the boom to pull the whole arrangement up.
