Thanks, Phil. Yes, I've seen a few possible candidates under "Vessel" on the PAS database. Think I'll see what FLO says and lob the responsibility onto her :lol:

UPDATE: she thinks that, based on what undercarriage remains, Easy's harness mount gets the nod. Having looked through literally hundreds of possibles on the PAS database, and based on its condition, that's good enough for me.

Thanks all :thumbsup:
