Hi Gaz,

This was very strange to see your first post (picture) about the fact you have a new boat.

When in fact you found a picture of our 1995 Fletcher Arrowflash, which we have owned since 1997 and still own it now and also in the picture is my Yamaha FXHO Cruiser which i bought new in 2008 and still have and rode round the Isle of Wight last Sunday 20th March, with the Solent Skiers.
Ps Ive owned the car for 12 years now and will not be selling that either.

Hope your still enjoying going out in your boat as i notice these posts were back in 2010.

David........... :-)

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!

hi Ben ,

Not sure who Mr Bell is but i own the boat and jetski above NOT Rhosneigr Gaz as he refered to in his first post. I don't own a VW but wouldn't mind a T5.1 4Motion to pull the boat & ski.

David.......

Still loving boats but moved on from owning a 16'6 Picton with a mercury 200 to this with twin volvo kad diesels, can still hit 36knots though but the water skiing is quite scary with a huge wake

No it wasn't. The boat up against the railings with a silver jetski in front are both mine. I know the posts are from 2010, i don't know why he decided to use the photo. I was aware the is picture was on google under Fletcher Arrowflash. Then reading all the comments about the boat looking well looked after, is because ive owned it since 1998 and the jetski i bought new in 2008.

My God I love the internet sometimes!!!
Let me tell you a little story ;-)
Once upon a time a guy put a yellow Fletcher on eBay, that naughty man (The previous owner of my boat) used a library pic of a very similar boat to help sell his boat.
I viewed the said boat and as page 4 of this very thread shows I indeed purchased it, but I did notice the engine graphics were different to which the naughty man admitted HE had pinched a pic off the interweb (I slapped his hand, very hard)
I had a very enjoyable year with this boat and sold it on for a nice profit, and all was well in the world!
Cheers Gaz (Mr Bell)
