Of the 18 boats (Prairie 29 and 36, and Atlantic 30 and 37) I know of, 13 have Perkins engines, 3 have Volvos and 2 have Yanmars. Only two have the "overpowered" Perkins Turbo 6.354 (mine and one other.)

Last I heard our own member here, FOG, had his listed for sale:
Prairie 36 For Sale or Not?

I have been trying to collect information about Prairie/Atlantic boats and their owners. Of the 26 or so I know of, I have engine information for 18 of them.
