Hi Janna
Thanks for the link. I hadn't seen this one listed.

Thanks to all that contributed to this mini-forum. I have just received confirmation that my offer has been accepted on the Camper & Nicholson 42. We are going to San Diego in early December to see it and get it surveyed. If all goes well we'll be plying the waters of the Pacific in the New Year in Gigi (to be renamed to her original moniker - Gosling)
Cheers, J-G

You asked about the Morgan Out Island 41. A delivery friend of mine from Santa Cruz.Ca. sailed them a few times and nick named them Morgan Outhouse 41. He was not impressed with the way they sailed or lack of.

Nicholson 44

I can give you quite a bit of info when I can get to a dependable e-mail site. I am vacationing in Puerto Vallarta at the moment and using a hotel e-mail connection.
I did buy the 42 and will be going to pick her up in San Diego in mid-Feb. I have a super source of info in the UK on all C&N boats but it is on my laptop.
IŽll contact you again soon. J-G

Camper& Nicholsons 42/44

Hi
Are you still looking for info on your C&N 44? We have sailed our 42 from San Diegeo to Guaymas, Mexico where she is on the hard now until November when we will start another season of cruising.
Needless to say I have now had lots of time to get into the nitty gritty of the boat so I am in a better position to discuss.
Let me know.
Cheers, Sailorjg
SV Gosling

pirate Camper & Nicholson 42

Hi carl
Just reading back on this site and thought to give you an update. We bought the 42 and have sailed it from San Diego to Mexico where we have just completed putting her on the hard for the summer. We'll be back cruising in late November.
We are very pleased with her so far and have found some very interesting sources of information including an archivist at Camper and Nicholsons that has a file on all C&N boats, including ours. She also has the "battleship" qualities of her sister designs.
I met a chap from Plymouth who was buying a boat in San Diego to ship back to the UK. In discussions the RN boat "Sabre" came up. I had sailed in company with her in a tall ships event in 1984. I didn't realize that she was a C&N 48.
Cheers, J-G
