Facebook Update

I've been keen to get a Nicholson 31 Group established on Facebook, and after a wee push from #38 Seavem we are now 'launched'. 

Whilst the Nicholson 31 Association Facebook page is great for 'reaching out' to interested parties, it is very much a one way process - any posts have to go through the Admin and be reposted. 

What we are trying to achieve with the Association generally is to facilitate and promote communication between members. This closed Facebook group will enable any member of the group to post directly as well as respond.

If you follow Facebook, and you haven't visited the Association page then get on line and get liking, also join the Nicholson 31 Group and get involved!


28th September:

A warm welcome back to Roger McCombie and #073 Taladh.

We haven't seen Taladh around for a few years, and judging by the issue that Roger has raised on the Forum he is suffering a similar problem to Seal Morning - a non functioning B and G sender. Does anyone have a sender that has been superseded, an idea of where one might be found or is there a different head that can be modified????? Answers on the forum please.........


12th September:

The Association has two new members to welcome:  David Oakley, the new owner of #033 Shalom and Eric Witheridge, the new owner of #098 Darteign.

#033 Shalom was on the 'last information list' as Eudocimus, and David reports that he picked her up in Holland in early May and eventually reached Plymouth by the end of June (via Ouistreham, Cherbourg and Poole). There will be adjustments to be made over the winter in preparation for an some extended cruising next year.

#098 Darteign is currently cruising around Wales, Scotland and Ireland for 3 months, and Eric will be basing her in Cardiff.

Congratulations to both of you, we look forward to hearing about your extended delivery trips in due course.......


10th September:

Seal Morning has returned from her travels, and is back on the North coast of Ireland for the winter; we had an interesting summer cruise which visited Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. Over a thousand miles of cruising were completed during July and August, with many adventures and encounters en-route. There have been some photographs posted on the Association Facebook page, and I'm hoping that more will be forthcoming from other members in due course.
