Fletcher boats

I have used som time on the website www.fletchermarine.com.

Before I use anymore time on it, I would like to see if there
are anybody interested in such a website.
Maybe it will even end up being a half decent site !

When I made the website there where no sites about Fletcher boats. And Fletchers own website is not very informative
about the older models, which for me is the only way to go

In the UK - these boats are very common, but a lot of models
are becomming ever more dificult to find in good condition.

If any of you 'Boatmaders' are interested in, or own a Fletcher, pleasepost your comments here or even beter : Register and write about it on Fletchermarine.com


Boatmad.com is the no. 1 rescource for performace boats

Kind regards

Hi Troels

Have registered; looks like a very promising start!

I think the problem you may have though is that the site may be a bit too specialised to attract a large number of hits. I think one of the reasons BoatMad is so successful is that it caters for a wide range of performance boats and people like myself, who are not that knowledgeable, can come on here, ask a question, and get a bunch of helpful answers.

Having said that I'm considering changing my Arrowflyte for an Arrowshaft at some point & found your picture gallery very useful.

What I am trying to say I think; is that as a central information point for Fletcher enthusiasts it will be very useful, but I think the forum will remain quiet.

I have several old Fletcher brochures. When I get my scanner working again I'll send them to you for posting.

Cheers

Darren

Hi there!

My fletcher site was alerady there ;-)
And Micks Fletcher-site was also already up!

I think the biggest problem is , that we only made it for Fletcher-Freaks!

So , i am not unhappy that i dont have 1000 visitors a day ;-)

By the way: in our forum is one guy who things about selling his Arrowshaft 199.
There is a Mariner 115 HP on it , but the transom needs a little bit attention. you can find the pics there.

For the UK-guys: there is one arrowshaft199 at your Ebay ! It has an older merc on it!

Best regards!

Andi

Hello Darren

Thank you for your input

Yes Fletcher boats is a very narrow subject but the whole idea is
make a specialized website about Fletcher boats.
The Forum also have 2 open forums.

The main goal for the website is not a lot of visitors - but being
a god rescource for Fletcher owners !


Regarding the Fletcher brochures : I would be great contribution to the website.
If you need a service manual for your engine or anything like that- your very welcome to check if I have anything os use.

Kind regards

Troels

Hello Andi - Your right ! Your website was the before
Fletchermarine.com. And a lot of the material on my website
is donated from your website - Thank you for that :-)
But Micks wasnt online at the time, allthough i had been before.

I just hope that the website will contribute to the
knowledge about Fletcher boats.
The amount of visistors is not so important.

See you around the forums : -)

Kind regards

Troels

My thinking is , that this is not possible coz its a fletcher-site

So you made a really good job - keep it !
Your site is easy to find via the search engines !

so , my experience is that a lot of fletcher-owners are too shy to register :-D
Most of them register , because they want to buy a used fletcher and they need some assistance. Most of them are doing that by email :-(

Best regards!
Andi
