Just heard that Big Jim Nicol, aged 80, has crossed the bar. Some will remember him from their "Crinan" days. No further details at present.

I sailed with him as a very green 3/O on the 'Bibi'
I have fond memories of him as a strict but fair Captain given to the occasional acts of kindness that I shall never forget.

May God rest him.
Condolences to his family
I am indeed sorry to hear the news he is remembered from my days as SM with Denholms,

I also sailed with Jim Nicol on the Bibi in 1968. I was apprentice engineer. He was strict alright and sometimes left you disalusioned with the job. Never did me any harm.
Sorry to hear of his passing.

Sailed with Big Jim on Bibi, 1970, strict but fair, an excellent shipmaster, was back to back with the late Ian Ramsay, I had the good fortune to sail with both gentlemen.
