Prairie works 36 in Pinellas Florida
Looking to help the trawler community. Providing advice in all aspects of boat systems.

I purchased a prairie works 36 trawler January 2020 for $7500 and have been restoring and learning the vessel as I go.

I previously owned multiple sailboats and lived aboard a non operable Chris craft Catalina 35 for a year.

Would love to advise people about boating in north Pinellas county.

At $7,500 for a Prairie 36 I imagine it needed some work. Would love to see pics of your progress bringing it back to life.

What hull number have you got? Where did you buy it? I make it a bit of a hobby to keep an eye on Prairies for sale, and I may have saved the ad from 2020.

By the way, the name of the company was Prairie BOAT Works, not Prairie Works.

Welcome, and best of luck with your project. Photos are always welcome.

The plaque on the boat says p36/35. I would assume hull 35. She is from 1981. I will be posting pictures very soon.

This is a video of right after I purchased the boat and removed an entire e150 van of trash from the vessel.

I picked the boat up end of December 2019 from port Richey Florida. Some less than respectable folks were using the boat to pass out in on weekends after a day of drinking at the bar next to the slip. They failed to pay slip rent for a few years so the owner sold the boat to make up for the loss.
