If you google "bracket" rather than "saddle" you'll be better informed.

The term 'saddle' is particular to the UK. In the States, the 'saddle' is referred to as the bracket. Therefore, as the numbers of outboards sold in the US exceeds the UK many fold and thus, generates far more online chatter. Using US terminology would give a more accurate picture, rather than the occasional busted saddle in the UK.

Does this make sense to you?

The forum is international. It does have a large number of users from across the UK and Ireland, commensurate with the relative popularity of RIBs in the UK, but unless there is something specific about Etecs+RIBs then I think Willk's point is that you'd have a much larger "sample set" to base your "evidence" on if you use the US nomenclature of bracket, given the larger total number of outboards sold in North America.

Dunno, but if this is the latest recruit to the Rudebash party, we can pack up and go home, job done.
