    Hi JB,
    Ref 'Royalist'; a Modified Dido class - some history of her on WIKI -
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Royalist_(89)

    BTW: couldn't have been the BIOS battery causing my PC problem.
    I could still access the BIOS settings, so I think the system drive was corrupted when I forced it to restart when it froze. The drive can not now be read ☹️
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi Guys,
    I think the time has come to call a halt!
    Red and Ian; Two of your recent posts were Flagged by David as 'Hateful'.
    See attached Snip-Pic.
    In addition I received the following PM from him yesterday.
    "ok i have had enough!!I asked Martin rep[etedly to have posts deleted when they were not what i asked for .yet i still get posts fromthe like of ian H after he said he was out .
    Maybe you all think iam stubbon maybe iam but i will ask for help when an if i feel i need it. I will not stand by anyone telling me what i need to do or asume i dont know anout wjhat iam doing .
    So as your a mod delete the posts that are against my whishes or you can delete my account"

    An unprecedented step to publish a PM I know.
    But justified I feel given the circumstances.
    The two superfluous Flaggings today were the last straw and I feel that I now have no option but to comply with David's wishes and block his account.
    Several of us have bent over backwards to try to help David but he seems to be 'advice resistant' and has become a disturbing factor, as I have seen also happened on at least one other forum - some 8 years or so ago on the same subject!
    Sad, the man obviously has problems but I can't let him make them ours.
    Best regards All, stay safe and keep on boat buildingπŸ‘
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Wellsboi actually needs some experience on model boat building and materials used. I have suggested this and got shot down in flames. Building a Carvel planked hull isn't something I would try as a first timer! I suggested a kit build so as to gain a little bit of experience.

    Hi Peter, just one of those people probably. Had a guy in the helicopter club who was the same. You'd spend hours sorting stuff out for him for various projects so they would work, and he'd go and do something totally different every time, and stuff it up. Needless to say I stopped bothering in the end.

    Similar thing happened to me years ago Doug, went to sleep at the computer and woke up to find the same message - no DOS detected☹️, never got it going again, think the pull starter cord brokeπŸ˜‚ My next HP did a similar thing (trying to start, then stopping before it did, -ECU fans starting etc) Dove into the guts and found it was just the BIOS battery, -replaced that, reset the clock and it was away. THEN, my newer HP Pavillion 23 did the same,- new battery and all was well. Did you try the battery? they only last maybe 5yrs.

    Something to cheer you up, - found a great pic of 'Royalist' in Queen Charlotte sound, way back, (probably 60s) Might have mentioned,- a friend of my parents was the ships surgeon (RNZN)

    Hi Ron,
    It was me (Doug) who had a problem while processing one of your drawings.
    Downloading wasn't the problem.
    It was while converting one in my Corel Draw that the PC hung up.
    I think I caused the crash myself πŸ€” by doing a Master Reset while it was still 'twiddling it's thumbs' with your file.
    Anyhow, after that the BIOS couldn't find the Boot sector or Operating System 😭
    I've tested the drive on the new PC with an external adaptor and it just spins and spins without being recognised by the OS. 😐
    Hey Ho! What the heck! The PC was 10 years old anyway πŸ˜‰
    Now I 'just' have to reload all my software on the new one 😝
    Cheers, Doug 😎
    PS Without a working PC I couldn't mention the problem before!

    Doug,
    You never said anything before about my drawings being too big to download. You are not using a Autodesk product, correct? Maybe I could put it on a memory stick or such and mail it to you? Or I could try saving in a zipped file or PDF.
