I just joined the Forum and would like to introduce myself. My name is J.J. and I just bought a 78 Prairie 29 last week. I met the owner in Rehoboth, DE who brought the boat down from Albany, NY the previous week. I brought it back to the Potomac via Delaware Bay, C&D canal, and the Chesapeake Bay. Two great things, I have a Yanmar 4JH3E with 221 hrs and a Bow Thruster. I look forward to upcoming discussions with all the "Trawler" fanatics out there.

Welcome aboard and congratulations on your new boat. Sounds like she has been well cared for. My Prairie 29 was also built in 1978. Mine is hull #6.


Again, welcome aboard.

Welcome to the TF, J.J., and congrats on your very handsome Prairie. Looks and sounds like a great package for cruising, and you've already christened it with a nice delivery trip home!

Nice little 'Pocket Battleship'. Keep us up on your waterfront condo.

Mine is hull#40.

You got a good deal there with the new engine.

Best of luck.

Another Prairie (36) owner here, willing to answer questions.

"Pocket Battleship"? Never heard that one, but I'm sure gonna plagiarize it!

Well, well... first of all welcome! Second... Trawler Fanatics you mention in post # 1. I'll be interested to see who applies. Personally I'm a Pleasure Boat Fanatic, and, damn proud of it!.
