So kind!
But I think one should have a heap more seniority before one would seek to stand in judgement .

Model Tug Man Nearly a BROWN CARD given, but because I am in a good mood I won't.

Here's one then Folk's Do you know the meaning of an "AIRDALE" (No not the dog) and my second is "BARBETTE" both naval slang word's.

I'll give up easily and bow to superior intelligence. I am not risking a brownie and have not referred to Google yet.
We had an Airdale terrier named Fergus. Delightful good tempered dog unless there was a stray cat he didn't know around. But as you say it doesn't refer to him.
Barbette is the armouring round the bottom of a gun turret, I think. So drawing on my time in the Andrew, this term might relate to a short skirt or to the lady wearing it.
I've usually been more respectful.

Having recently purchased a copy of Classics by Ivor Wilkins I was thumbing through the pages before getting down to some serious reading and what did I find???? There in all her glory, on a 2 page spread was Russ' steam launch, Romany. And, I would assume, our own Captain Russell Ward at the tiller. It is a beautiful picture of the boat and a fine book. Mr. Wilkins definately "gets it".

A fine book. Yep, that is "Romany" in all her glory. Better looking than her owner. There are several closeups of her if you search  -I can be seen doing some boiler adjustments in one of them I think. Also the stunning picture at the front of "Janice" was taken at St Arnauds in Nelson -Lake Rotoiti. That was not long after I finished her in 2007. Someone saw her there and had to have her. She is a little honey of a boat.
You see, 25 years back, I really just got fed up with small models and saw steamboats as a model you could ride on and have fun. I may be doing a reversal on this opinion and going back to small ones!
