Broken Transom Saddle.

Here is a video of my broken transom saddle showing the prop and skeg just to alleviate any doubts to BRP if I have hit anything.

As it was to dangerous to tow the 300 + miles home I had the engine removed and put into the back of my car by the people up at Oban where we moored the ribs who just happen to be Suzuki dealers I rang LPB for permission before doing this just in case it would effect the warranty. I can only but wait now until Ian at LPB comes back of his holiday on Tuesday.

Your not wrong there Dhd , but do you really think having a boat would have made any difference

Yes they do have them but you must not use them while out on the water

My thinking is did the saddle give up where the rest sits on it ?
