Hello

Peter13Peter13 Cologne,Croatia,NetherlandsMember Posts: 32
First of all, I would like to apologize for the strange school English, but in order to be able to talk to you at least in a slightly understandable way, I am sending my sentences via the google translator.
My name is Peter, I live in Germany and I drive a Rinker 250 FV which I imported from Nebraska.
My friend Boris (blaubatu) had helped me a lot at the time and also asked a few questions about it here in the forum. I also registered here at the time, but unfortunately my access data are not correct and so I have just registered again.
Best Regards from Cologne send´s Peter .

    Hallo Peter und willkommen im Message Board, Hoffentlich macht diese Übersetzung Sinn. Ich glaube, ich erinnere mich, dass Ihr Freund Fragen für Sie gestellt hat und Sie hoffentlich die Antworten bekommen haben, die Sie brauchten. Das ist ein langer Weg, um alles zu verschiffen, besonders ein Boot, ich würde gerne hören, wie das gelaufen ist. Bitte teilen Sie uns mit, was Sie sonst noch benötigen.

    Hello aqua_aura,
    
    Yes, that's right, a friend asked me a few questions at the time and was also very helpful in other ways.
    The trip from Nebraska to me in Germany was quite exciting. First, the Rinker was pulled on its trailer from Nebraska / Iowa to Baltimore. After bad weather, burst tires, it arrived in the port and had to stand for 2 weeks because a strong storm made the crossing impossible. During this time the tarpaulin broke and a few other things. Unfortunately, the Rinker didn't look so sexy afterwards when she arrived at the port of Belgium in Zeebrugge. My friend picked them up from there and put them in his boat shed, where we went almost every weekend and the rinkers repaired and made them pretty. We then went on vacation with her to Croatia, where unfortunately another accident happened and she had to go back to Germany for repairs. We now use them every weekend in the Netherlands, where we have a port. So she no longer has to travel back and forth on the continent, but makes us enjoyable hours in the fresh water of the Netherlands during the season. It is currently in a hall in winter storage.

    I would like to hang a small television in the cabin for next year. About 22 max 2
    4 inches. I would like to hang this on the outside of the small cupboard. Is that feasible? I will then have to organize a suitable wall bracket. How did you do that without blocking the cabinet with a TV? It would also be great if it could be folded from the ceiling above the bed, but then the self-locking stainless steel screws peek out of the deck next to the Bomar hatch, it doesn't look nice either :-)

    @Peter13 many have come up with great ideas for a TV in that location. Hopefully they will see this and post pics for you.

    aero3113 : Yes i hope  :) .

    Alternatively, it would also be possible to mount it on the side wall of the kitchen block, probably even easier, as it is just a wooden wall without foam and leatherette cladding. The only disadvantage would be that I have neither a 12 volt nor a 230 (110) volt connection there and that would have to cabling and installing everything first. On the other hand, these are already laid out nicely in the closet.

    In the meantime, yes, but it was also a lot of work and investment. 
    And as it is with boats ... every year something different comes up that has to be done :#

    @Peter13 I was only kidding as the water in your pictures are crystal clear. Not so much so in my area....

    Dream_Inn & raybo3 , 
    the pictures on which the water looks so beautiful is the Adriatic Sea in Croatia, the water in Netherlands is not so beautiful. The only thing that might be better in the long run is fresh water.
