Which Fletcher Arrow; there are probably hundreds of different types?

The Fletcher boats are good recreational boats & some were even raced successfully.

Probably in the 'Top Ten' because they are so popular & are what Joe Public thinks of as a 'Speed-Boat'.

I saw that article and thought the same! Especially having read at some point in the past an article about a trip from Cardiff to Ireland on it, by Matt I think. After reading Matt's bit on it though I wondered if it had a guardian angel as the guy fell asleep whilst driving at 30 odd knots and relied on text messages to let him know when he was approaching the coast!
