Re: [campernicholson] Nic 35 Windflower
- Hi Barry
Many thanks for this information. I'll pass it on to the man who is doing the work on here. The interior is totally gutted, and I couldn't find the usual little plate on the stern. The chain plates are being done and there was apparently considerable ingress of water into the core, so he pulled off the deck, fixed the core, and is now starting to put her back together again. I'll see if I can glean any other information from him, because it sounds like your boat.

wife & I owned C & N 35 hull number 151 from 1979
until 2007. The boat was exhibited in the Fort
Lauderdale Boat Show in 1978 and purchased by someone called
Owen Jones. He sailed it to Annapolis, Maryland in
1979, which is where we bought it from Mr. Jones. .
It had no name. We called it Wildflower II.
(Our previous boat was Wildflower). We moved the
boat from Annapolis to Florida in 1999. The boat
originally had a Watermota Seapanther engine. We
replaced it with a Yanmar 3JH in 2003. We sold the
boat to a gentleman from the UK in 2007. He stored the
boat at a yard in Indiantown, Florida during the 2007
hurricane season & refurbished the vessel over the
winter 2007-2008. He renamed the vessel
"Windflower." In June of 2008 he left
Florida, sailed to Bermuda, the Azores and back to the
UK. Perhaps this is the vessel that is on the hard in

Does anyone know the details of the Nic 35 Windflower,
currently undergoing a refit on the hard in Horta? Things
like hull number, year of manufacture, previous owners etc?
I'm just curious.
