What do you would like to know? Did you know that there is a site about fletcher boats? Maybe you can find there a bit more if you ask about them. It's a quite old model. I think it's older than '75... Mine is from '79 but is the newer model.

It looks a bit like glastron the nose. In those years glastron and fletcher worked together. Fletcher had a license to make some glastrons etc...

Hello boaters

The bloke he was talking about whilst teaching me how not to sink was mine! Turns out I have a little more info now if anyone can expand on it. I have been told the boat was built about 1968, is probably a Fletcher 170 and that they used to be used as race boats? That jog anyones memory? Have added another pic too if it helps?

Thanks

ModWolf
