No, just download the mod InGameEditor from the steam workshop, and use the mod to find and delete the naval units called convoys. The british convoys spawn north of suez and at the side of the map in the atlantic. Use the glance at map button to view the whole map. However if you do set up the lua log then after the crash the last line should tell you exactly which convoy is crashing your game, and you can delete it next time you start it up. If that doesn't work then do upload the lua log.
