I have a 470 and I do not know where is the bet place and the best system to storage the life raft. Any suggestion is appreciated. Thank you.

In my 505 I store mine in a locker on deck when underway off-shore.  I added a small pad eye inside to attach the painter.  That way it is easy to deploy if ever needed.  There is lots of disagreement on this issue.  Many want auto-deploying on the deck or rail.  I am concerned that such a strategy could end up with the raft caught in rigging.

Thank you for your ideas, but hard to understand how you keep the raft if I do not see a picture. if you have the chance, I appreciate. If you do not have the boat next to you, no worries. Thank you anyway.
