    Yeah, tis a bit annoying Doug, people use sisters, brothers, friends accounts to buy things and it gets quite confusing as you are not sure who you are dealing with unless they offer the info. Same with email accounts, 'talking'to a guy up north recently using his girlfriends email acct but at least he told me. Nothing like the old face to face I reckon.
    I saw a TV article where media techies can come up with virtually undetectable fake people such a actors to make totally fake news etc, which is pretty scary stuff. All they need is one pic of the person and they can place them in any scenario (not just stills either). Once they perfect it you won't be able to trust any media! (not that you can now even without this new stuff!)

    Apologies Nerys, my mistake, used to people using other peoples accounts/names on our local 'Trade Me' site. You never Know who you are talking to, so it's a bit of a lottery on the internet. Not expecting a lady model boat enthusiast I suppose, and didn't even cross my mind to check the profile. Great that you're interested!

    Certainly something to think about Doug.

    Martin.
    If it looks right it probably is.

    Interesting thought. There's always the bedside cranes they have for lifting patients around in hospitals, There is a hydraulic version, so doesn't need electrics, but I don't rate one of those (yet). They would be very heavy and awkward to lug around though.

    I take most of the night watches on this ship!
    Need another drink and a snack before I turn in.

    No doubt, speak tomorrow, I mean today.

    Cheers,
    Nerys

    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    "If I could manage to get into it ..."
    Nerys, I believe Colin H is working on the design of a small crane for launching large model boats. If it's not too undignified ......
    Might get you afloat again, just a thought.
    I get one now and again, when the weather changesπŸ˜‰
    Now nearly 3am here so time to furl my sails methinks.
    C U on the morrow, G'night, Doug πŸ˜΄πŸ’€πŸ’€
