This deliverable D4.2 complements the information available in several ways: 1. We analyse the decisions of individual skippers to invest in adaptation, based on a plausible increase in carrying capacity during the ship’s lifetime. This is only possible for technical and operational measures (I). 2. We combine the effects of prediction methods (III) and torekeeping/relocation (IV). In fact, we study the link between improved prediction and savings in storekeeping. 3. We provide a short discussion on the presence of learning effects in the IWT sector
