The size of text viewed on screen needs to be set to smaller or smallest.

    - From the Internet Explorer menu bar at the top, click on VIEW;

While we're at it - press the F11 key for full-screen view. Pressing F11 again will toggle the screen back to regular mode. When viewing this website's screens, try the F11 key often - it will expose more of the screen and hidden quotes.

THEN ... click on Model Ships on the menu at the left.

And by all means have your speaker system turned on. All music is MIDI which I own, most of which is on record, tape, CD or video and is presented for my pleasure which I want to share with fellow surfers. Please abide by the music copyright laws. A website without music is like eating a donut without milk - oops! - sorry coffee drinkers

And ... if interested in a full screen nautical presentation ...

clik on Surfs Up just above the Model Ships button.
