I got a few pics at weekend I will upload of major strip downs and massive cracks in hulls. Few power head swaps done as one dropped a cylinder, one went upside down so was knackered, one lost an ecm and no spares in country. P1 seems like one big family and everyone was pitching in to fix damaged engines and boats until 3am on Sunday morning. All interesting stuff and thanks to the Pitt guys for the natter.

Similar to any other motorsport then.

I can't say I've seen much mention of it on here. There was the unit that Kerny broke - bad casting IIRC. I googled "Evinrude Transom Failure" there's Kerny's case and a some racing HOs. The feedback on Evinrude Owners Forum was that it was rare in their experience.
on another thread now.still not heard of any other makes snapping saddles like etecs ?
