Looking for Material about Fletcher boats

Hey boat friends!!

Can anyone help with finding material about Fletcher boats????

I have owned a fletcher boat for the last 15 Years. I am very interested in all things that regard Fletcher boats. So I decide to make the site www.fletcherboat.com

The site should show all the fletcher boats and share information about the boats.

I will therefore hear, if any one, have any material regarding fletcher boats, that they will share with me???. Pleas use E-mail: speedbaad@hotmail.com

All the material that I receive will be polished on my site, so that owners of fletcher boats can enjoy them.

May you have many fast an funny hours on the water.

Fletcher fan, welcome to boatmad.

There is a growing number of Fletcher enthusiasts joining boatmad, some with websites and info on these boats, you guys should get together and 'pool' your info.

Maybe a future development of boatmad could be a section with dedicated areas for different makes, Fletcher, Ring Phantom, Cougar etc.

There have been a few Fletcher pics posted on this thread over the last few weeks:

Where is the article wrong? I quite enjoyed it pre-purchase anticipation and all that.

The other Fletcher looks scary to me too, dont think the missus would put the kid on that. dont think I would want to be on it!

No problem...what i meant was i was too drunk to post any pics last night [pissed is british slang for drunk].i have no problem with you having a pic of my boat in your gallery.The pic is from when the previous owner had it

Had the boat about 12 months & it handles quite well although its a bit skittish flat out...tends to chine walk a bit...it is grossly overpowered but it handles it quite well considering it has a max hp rating of 115

It was set up for skiing so it tends to over rev flat out...i intend to change the prop this season & would welcome any suggestions on size...it currently shows 60-65mph on the clock but i,m sure it will go faster with the right prop
