I want to buy a boat.
I Can afford mostly only Cat R registered boats.
Can I buy CAT R and register as Cat E or D by only buying more safety equipment and just re-register the boat?

Use: Langebaan, Hangklip, Strand. ( sea 1nm, but would like to be able to do 5nm ).

Boats mostly available in my budget are 15-17foot.

Calibre (mono)
Skipper ( cathedral hull )

I prefer solid boats ( not rubber ducks )

Currently have a Ark Fishduck + 8hp Mercury 2 stroke.

Love the freedom of just going out and not to worry about all the admin. ( in a safe way, I know ).

Plan B - upgrade the Ark Fishduck to the Fishalot. Issue is not enough space on the Fishduck for me and my son to fish.
