Where in the world is your Prairie 29?

Perhaps be interesting to see where the last of the Prairies 29s are to be found today.

I am #33 'Privasea' - Placencia, Belize (will post pictures after renovation are finished).

For a few years after I bought my Prairie 36 I was maintaining an "owners list" of known Prairies, gleaned from forums like this and boat "for sale" web sites. To be honest, I haven't been maintaining it for the past couple of years. There didn't seem to be a huge interest.

Frankly, as interesting as it is to know who owns your sister ship, there isn't a lot you can do with that information. I thought about setting up a mailing list, but nobody uses those any more. A social media group might work, but which platform?

Just thought it may be interesting how many are still in 'service' and where are they. At present I am renovation #33 so will continue the brand's presence for another 10 years or so down in these parts.

We generally donít allow links to commercial places that are not boating related. Please just add your photos to your post. There are instructions in the how to section of the forum. I edited your post to remove the link to AirBNB.

It is better to just attach the photos to your post. A lot of people donít have or want a google account.

Impulse, a 1979 29' Prairie, is happily cruising the Gulf Coast of Florida. I love this elegant little boat.
I moved down from a much bigger motor yacht and I could not be happier.

Nice pic of you underway. That is a serious hard top you have there. Could you please provide some details about it? And how is your rebuild coming along? Any second thoughts about doing the work in Belize as opposed to here in the states? Thanks and Good Luck.

Hi Oldhatt: It was build with 6 4'x8' panels of 3Mô Honeycomb, extremely light but strong, can walk on it and did during putting solar panels on it (4 x 365w). Fiberglass composition: Mat, Roven + Mat for stiffness. Having it enclosed with zipper sections now.

Here in Belize you can find people to do whatever you need, though of course helpful to do as much as possible yourself so know how to fix it instantly if needed. Right now finishing electrical work, which is about 1/10 what was there before; it is amazing how small, light, efficient today's technology is compared to yesteryears, though those boats Prairie were build like tanks!

Safe Journeys /:0

Note, 'missing piece' in the back, which of course the part is just inside boat, but we always leave it off. I would never have such a boat without that cut out. Makes getting in and out of boat so easy and a great place to sit toward inside or outside.

Lucky Dog, a Prairie 29, is at my dock in Vero Beach Florida. I may sell her: my wife and I have some health problems and I can't easily get in the bilges to do basic maintenance.
