Yup. Dirty & broken windshield. I have a new one from Tom, but I'm not sure about the position I want it in.

This has been the best position for me. Forward enough to not crowd the cockpit and leaves the grab handle easy to reach, also creates a makeshift "dash" to set things on. Far enough back to block most spray and give some area to duck under if needed.

That's about where I'm planning on installing it.

Yeah, no hurry for the high heat & humidity. I run an 8 color printing press, with no air in the shop.
Getting too old for the heat, humidity, ink & chemicals. Not to mention super high stress due to deadlines.

I wanted to go on the Susquehanna River last week, near Three Mile Island ( didn't even know it was the 40th anniversary of the partial meltdown. ), but ran out of time. Maybe this week.

I hear you there, I don't have AC in my shop either. Makes it fun when it's 100 and I have to turn the fans off because I have Mig welding to do. I prefer hot and humid over cold any day though, this cool weather is definitely nice.. 75 right now. I'm itchin' to go fishin'!! haha  >:D

Went to the Limerick Nuclear Plant today. Very cloudy, and some light rain

Saw a cool bridge too. Love the decorative design. You can see the original stone, then the concrete addition.

My new seat is working out great!

Very cool! Love old bridges myself, especially railroad bridges. Another member here has used that seat too, a little heavy, but it was comfortable. The nuke plant was cool, I have a paper mill on my stretch of the river, not sure which is preferable..  ;D

Speaking of seats, I thought this would good enough for me, but I think it's a bit too wide to fit in my Es-Kape - which  I can't check because it's locked in the shed under four feet of snow at my cottage.

Same price in Canada as the U.S., which makes it a bargain up here.

Think I started a post about Mokai Seats a few years ago with a similar seat. I believe it was to wide, but not positive.

Thanks Tom. Close, but no cigar, eh? The seat is 22 inches wide. Too bad, since it looks more comfortable than the Mokai OEM and is pretty cheap and light.

Tom, do you have a link for that hatch opening? Mine is the round, twist to open kind. Very hard to open, especially if the threads are dirty.
