Liferaft storage?

I have an eight man liferaft plonked on the deck forward of my front seats as that was the most convenient place to put it five years ago. I find though that it takes up valuable floor space. Are there any coded RIB owners out there that have come up with ingenious methods of carrying their liferaft? I was thinking of perhaps hanging it from my 'A' frame, has anyone tried trhis?

IMO, the liferaft is in the best place now.

Seen one with a seat that folds down onto it and another on a frame just above tube in a stainless rack but that needs balance if a single canister ,
Another is inside consol front seat area if large enough

Don't think you have much room on the a frame. Weight issues at the stern? What about just behind the jockey seats in a cradle ?

Change it for a valise one that will fit in the locker in the front of the console if you can afford to loose that space. Otherwise back of the seats or where it is. Be careful of moving it to far back as they aren't the lightest of objects
