I put in the Youtube video link plus put in a pic for good measure (photos/ files) and when you go back you will find it asks for a title -seems to delete your previous one but leaves the info - (if you have put in your text title/description and blurb at the start) just type in the title again and upload. Hope that works for you.

CNC boat kits...?
Sounds like you might not have been waiting long enough for the Arduino to boot and load GRBL, so the port refused to connect, and then just stayed 'busy'....
If it happens again, try opening and closing another port, and then going back to 8. That seems to reset the flag...

Hellenic Navy - La Combattante IIIb class Fast Attack Craft
This is a coastal patrol ship that practically designed its self.
I had some plastic card and I just wanted to make something, I hade no plans or drawings and this was the end result.
This was made using my baking paper tip.
I never got around to installing rc equipment in it as a friend decided that he wanted it as it was.
And I never got took any photos of the making of it.

DF's maiden voyage went well yesterday, despite hardly any breeze at all. Myself and fellow club member Colin who was re-tuning his Graupner RG-65 had a lovely time cruising around our club water, trying to find the best of the rare breaths of wind. Mine is the white boat with clear white sails

I just thought I would post some photos of my HMS Cottesmore.
She is still a work in progress.
I have been working on her for about three years now.(in between other projects)
I purchased the hull And running gear from Fleetscale.
Everything else has been made by myself using odds and ends, bits and pieces including yogurt pots and a lot of LED's
I have a few more years work to do before she is completed, lots more bits to make.
