mooring a rib and going aground

Does it make any difference if you put a rib on a mooring where sometimes it will go on ground and ly over on a mud surface.? Is this ok or would it be bad for the tubes?

No it will be fine apart from getting a bit muddy. I have left mine on a mooring for a couple of weeks with no problems..

Only thing to watch is your transducer (if you have one) it it is mounted on the transom it may foul on the bottom as the tide receeds.

Lying over to one side on the tubes is ok so not hard on the tubes?
You would be ok so as long as there is no big stone or anything where the rib will ly over
