If it happens again they can have the whole engine back and I would go to court to fight my case.
As for the racing boats Cookee I'm sure there's a lot more power and torque pushing them boats so the stresses on the saddle mounts would be far greater than my meagre 60 hp, not that that should be an excuse though.
