Look at beaching legs, designed for the job.

i would look at land drain the black ribbed mdpe type they have it that size strong enough to hold your boat no floating issues or if you do want they have blanks to seal the ends last time i bought some 5m length 600 mm dia 120 possibly more now

Another idea i have been given if inflation makes the boat unstable is to fill with water, even though they bags would no be used in any depth of water. I have found good 12v pumps that can fill 400+l of water in less than 30 mins.

I first looked at beach legs but as aid above it when the boat is at rest and they sink in a soft sand/mud, they would need large feet/pads to prevent from sinking. Its ok if you have a regular mooring but in my case i will be moving the boat from place to place.

Well I don't want to quell your innovation but people have been sailing and beaching yachts for hundreds of years, including on muddy bottoms!

The fact you plan to move from place to place means you presumably won't know the exact details of the sea bed in each location and the sharp hazards that might lie underneath - your inflatable (or "fillable") idea could be really expensive if it fails suddenly and puts your boat on its side into incoming waves or just crashing onto a rocky bottom.
