Default A new boat!

Having owned my old boat for ten years or so i've taken theplunge and got a new 'un.

For anyone who thinks that boating is expensive then 3k will see u a boat like this is tidy order (if ur in the right place at the right time!!!)

Then it's about 20-30 petrol per full day on the water. 100 to insure, 30 Council permit.

It's actually a cheap sport to get into, if u call lounging around with a BBQ and a beer a sport!!!!

P.S I reckon around 10,000 would get u the Jet Ski also!

Size and Age really. The old one was getting a bit too old and too small really.

But a Fletcher 14 is a great starter boat, peanuts to run and soo much fun!!!!

The red one is an 85, will be keeping that in storage because i haven't the heart to scrap it!

The new one (Yellow) is a 96, first of the new model Arrowflash 15, i think it's the same model as yours just a later version?
