2460RE: [campernicholson] New to the list
- Jan 1, 2004Dear Katie and Simon,
Thanks for sending your list of owners and boat names for the Nic 35, it
made interesting reading!
You may recall that we had a chat via email a while back when you were
thinking of selling your boat in Turkey. I can totally understand why
you decided to keep her!
My situation is that I have bought ''Trutz'' which is hull number 225.
She is currently lying in Vilamoura Marina in Portugal and I intend to
have her shipped back here to the UK where we will be doing a bit of a
refit before sailing her in July on our honeymoon! You could say that I
will incentvise the boat yard to finish the work on time.
Just to fill in a bit of information, Trutz has the Perkins 4-108 with
only 1100 hours. She was built in 1986 for a German called Hans Knuppel
who sailed her from Campers Yard (where I will be mooring her) to
Portugal himself. To say that she was fully spec'd would be an
understatement. Spare sprayhood, loo seat, intercoolers, 4 autopilots
etc etc. The description of her hull colour as ''dark red'' made us
chuckle. It is actually a most unflattering brown which we intend to
change to cream during the refit.
Needless to say, we can't wait to get her back here to the UK. We
complete the sale very soon and then I will make a general announcement
to the group for information.
I had a look down through your list, we actually see quite a few of
these boats sailing in the Solent on quite a regular basis including
Drifter (gorgeous boat) and Syrinx which now has very nice blue
If we see any others which don't feature on your list I will do my best
to remember to email you.
Happy New Year!
Colin and Jo

Buenos dias! and welcome to the Nic 35 group. At #194 your boat is
very similar to ours (#202) so I'm looking forward to our discussions
you. Our boat originally had the VW Piranha engine but before we bought
the engine was change to a Perkins 4-108 which we're very happy with.
Please send me some more details of your boat - the name, previous
location, colour and anything else you'd like to tell us. I'll add the
information to the list I keep - see attachment - if you have any
information about other boats to add to the list please let me know.
(Note to other members of the group - following a hard disc problem
this year I had to reinstall files from a backup disc, and I'm not
that this is the most recent version of the list. If you see any errors
have any new data please let me know!)
Happy New Year to you, Kique, and to all the members of the group. Fair
winds for 2004!
Simon & Katie
Gin Rummy, CN35-202
