Fiberglass dameged - How to repair?

Hello everyone!
I have just purchased my first boat and I'm pretty stoked... I'm eager to learn how to do-it-myself, so I'm here looking for some wise word regarding som repairs I need to make.. And I am wondering in what order I should do stuff.. Wash the boat or start with the bottom?

This is the biggest damage:
(See first pic of attachment)

My plan:
1. Sand around down to the fiberglass
2. Use two-component primer
3. Use some epoxy filler
4. Lay glass over.. Smaller to larger... or was it larger to smaller
5. Paint with white topcoat
6. Paint blue and red stripes with spray paint??
7. Change antifouling

This is the second project:
(See the two last pictures in attachment)

My plan:
I have no plan What do you think I should do?

Other than the above, I need to remove old antifouling and paint the bottom, and fix a broken handrail from the lift.
