Prairie 29' trawler

My Prairie 29, hull #6 is for sale, She was built in 1978 and has had two owners. My wife and I purchased her in 2010 with the intent to extensively cruise the coast of Florida. We set to upgrade her systems and make everything fully upgraded and operational. Shortly after our purchase my wife was diagnosed with a terminal illness and passed in 2015. I have decided that it s not as much fun without her.

Every aspect of this boat has been rebuilt or repaired or replaced, including fuel tanks, widows, electronics. She is in excellent conditioned and ready to cruise. Add some diesel and fill the water tank, throw of the dock lines and go. She is at her home slip, Harbor town marina in Merritt Island, Fl. You may reach me at : jtweedy@cfl.rr.com, Check out her add on CL for pictures. https://spacecoast.craigslist.org/bo...493282910.html

I am sorry for your loss. Don't give up your dreams. Invite some friends for some day trips.....
For some reason, your friends might very well find a date for you. I read that somewhere. Now, I need to find some of those friends. CHUCKLE

Sue Marie is under contract pending a sea trial and a survey. I will keep you posted. Thanks for the interest and the kind comments. Not giving up my dreams, just going in a different direction, some cruising and more fishing.


One lesson learn, don't put off your dreams for a better time, before you know it is to late.
