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.

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.
