    Joao was one of life's true gentlemen. I 1st met him here in SOL and we became good friends. He helped me immensely from setting up Fifi to improving my general navigation technique.

    After I stopped sailing here we continued to stay in touch. He gave me every encouragement he could with my photography. I have pages and pages of PMs of advice and suggested re-edits - all so supportive.

    His heart was huge. He care for our society and would often vocalise injustices - particularly to disabled people.

    I am sorry we never got to meet but Joao will be an influence on me and my photography for a long time to come. My respects to Miguel and his family.

    Big Hugs Joao. Big hugs my friend.

    Im not a tachie but Kippers point that making the grib denser (to under 0.5)and the problem being resolved seems to suggest its the way QT is handling less dense files.

    The conversion is a process few of us (me included!) can do!!

    Thank you for looking at this

    It is the Brainaid grib and the SailDocs gribs :)

    How do all

    Further to discussions in the RTW chat Odyss pointed out that QT had some annoying bars across the screen. I had initially put it down to a shortage of memory on my computer and the bars being nothing but a drawing issue - but on closer inspection it seems to be affecting the routing - screen shot Odyss posted in chat

    Version 5.3.7

    The problem occurs when using saildocs and Brainaids gribs

    Update- Issue is also occurring in 5.3.5
    Update - from Kipper All, just tracked down the Qt bug. If the grib grid resolution is 1 degree or greater, the problem occurs. Of the resolution is less than 1 degree, it goes. I've just reprocessed the Brainaid grib down to 0.5

    It seems (for at least 3 of us) that the grib files are not being loaded by QTVLM - Ive sent Eddie another email and will update here as and when I hear anything (if Eddie doesn't post 1st!)
