did fletcher produce 36ft cigarettes?

Hi there!

i found a german article from 1975.

it shows norman fletcher on the left and don aronow on the right.

the shake-hands means that Fletcher will produce the 36ft cigarette version in the uk under license. its the same hull that aronow made a winner several times.
but the one produced in uk will be more " civilian " ( sorry, really cant translate in english ), that means the same hull but not a cigarette for pure racing.

i think thats interesting and i hope that you guys from UK know a little bit more

Fletcher-cigarettes

From the files,the English version.
Like a lot of things,you never hear any more.If it was ever produced , it would have appeared in some rag or other.
Chris Grayer who posts on here would know the full story (Fletcher`s nephew)
