I have downloaded this file from FSX MISC. Pilotable-Cxr-QE2.zip.
It is a pilotable HMS Queen Elizabeth 11. It appears to have installed fine. The file is in simobjects/boats.
My problem is where do I find the ship? It doesn't appear in any menus and it could be anywhere.
Any help gratefully appreciated.

Just a guess. Try to move the ships folder to aircraft. Search under aircraft if it is there and select it.

First thing I tried. Doesn't appear in the aircraft list.
The read me file definitely says put the folder into Boats. Seemed odd to me at the time.

I installed the file to the SimObjects\Boats folder as directed in the Readme. According to the Aircraft.cfg it's listed under Ship as manufacturer on the FSX Aircraft Selection menu.

Voila!

Sometimes when i open the folder it is inside a new folder so it must be liften back outside.
That usually happen me when i can not find a aircraft or ship etc.
"FOLDER X-ship" open it and i find the "real" folder inside. Check?

Thanks Bofredrik.
That did it. I now have an aircraft carrier in my air craft list.
Now all I need to do is try it out.
Thanks to all for the prompt replies.
Best wishes.
Zaphod.
