[0.14.4.1] Inflatable boat virtually unusable without creator present

This is perhaps an old design flaw rather than outright bug.

When maps/snapshots load, some physics objects are often frozen where they were placed until disturbed by being picked up by a player.

The inflatable boat is one such object, however, because the only means of interaction is sitting on it, it will remain locked in place unless the actual builder of the condo is there to set it down again. This means inflatable boats are never usable as actual boats on workshop maps.

Steps to Reproduce

Place an inflatable boat
Reload the map/snapshot

What I expected to happen

Inflatable fun for everyone

What happened

Boat stucc (until admin intervention (but only of they hosting it themselves))

I think a good compromise for this would be to enable physics automatically once someone sits in it.
