Ok, I'm doing my best

As soon as i get the SR4 i'm aiming for, my posts will increase dramatically...

Another question

I am planning on repainting the whole boat, in the orange it used to be. How do i do that?

I know i have to sand down the original coat/antifouling/anything else then fill all the holes in the hull with gelcoat filler,

But what then?

Flip it over and spray it with 2-pack for the best finish.

Its a type of paint which before you apply it you mix '2 packs' together. Unlike traditional paint where the bulk of what you spray down is thinners and evaporates off, most of 2 pack paint are chemicals that react together to form a hard layer. You get more paint down in a single coat, and get a harder finish.

Mextli - as a point of interest, what are the boating laws in Germany like? Do you need an official qualification to take a boat out on inland waters/rivers or coastal resorts etc? Is access easy?

Avon used to offer the 4m with a twin 25hp option.. maybe you should buy an additional 25hp!!

If you boat has more hp than 5 you need different licenses for inland/sea. I have both.
For using a radio you need another two licenses, I have those too.
I also have another license which allows you to pilot vessels over 25m on german waters.

The Acces to the water is relatively easy, all 25 river miles there is a slip, most of them are even and very easy to use.

Most Canals have speed limits though.

I haven't been much to the coast yet, and certainly not with a boat but there are some tide-independet slips...
