Like Tom I was flummoxed by the posts on saddle soaking, especially in a forum where repair("conservation") of any kind is generally eschewed. Notwithstanding, "before and after" photos of soaked saddles would be very interesting. Meanwhile, the only saddle I'm waterboarding is my plastic Unicanitor.
