    I found it easier just to run the program direct from the link without opening google earth. It seems to run faster, and is more stable. Worth a try??

    A bit disconcerting to see a ship parked in Manchester - until you zoom in to see the Ship Canal in detail :Smile:

    why am i always tempted to download rubbish like this.....:Doh:

    just had to shut down and reboot my lappy as, after downloading the link, it slowed to around the same speed as the (static) ships in the channel.

    my lappy and google earth dont get along too well and the add-on made it even worse.

    i downloaded the link in the original '5er onboard ship' thread and it did the same thing.

    if anyone catches me downloading this dross again give me a SLAP!!!!
