Which side Mick? Feel for you as well mate mine was still under warranty so no charge. If you have a gap between the engine mount and the top of the transom make sure you block it with a piece of hard plastic strip.
I will take a pic of mine and post it later.

Broke on the starboard side. There is not much mention of broken saddles on this size of out board

Feck me same side as mine then 😣

If your outboard is raised leaving a gap between the transom when you get it fixed make sure that you put a block between it to strengthen it....like mine in the pics.....

TSM, do you want me to change this thread title to "Spontaneous Etec Disintegration"?

The Curse of Kerny is a different thing...
