I'm not absolutely convinced about inflatables being easier to stow. A decent sized one is big, bulky and surprisingly heavy. While they'll stow in a cockpit locker getting the bloody thing in and out is a damnable nuisance, to such an extent that we now leave ours permanently stowed on deck presumably meaning that one of these days it is bound to get nicked-TDW
We stow ours on the foredeck when not on davits. It has a full Sunbreela cover the Admiral made with elastic hem while in the davits or on the deck fully inflated. We also have a smaller one for when it is stored deflated. Takes a minute to cover All this so it doesnt get nicked or catch the UV Rays
