I think not. Look at the pics on the original thread. http://www.rib.net/forum/attachment....9&d=1346183803

I cant see any metal fatigue that would have caused that, and Ive seen both threads despite a pic that showed percieved weakness, its hard to know without seeing the actual engine but its a huge break over a lot of metal and thats unusual given the application, real bummer to have to deal with though Because of the apparent constant colour, it doesent look as if its happened over time either ? It looks like inherent weakness to me

As a fellow Etec owner this is a worring development. I am wondering if there is a history of Etec 40-50-60 hp outboards breaking the saddle?

I have put a post up on the Etec owners forum and only had two replies saying that they have never seen anything like this and mentioned the possibility of bad casting.
