Measurements

Since we have our Prairie 36 on the hard I thought I would take a few measurements that would be useful to us on the “Great Loop” and could also benefit someone else. I know Capt Tom also took some measurements of his Prairie 36 that are here, http://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/s...ght-27814.html at post #14. I’ll also post my findings there and link it it back to here for reference.

I also found a brochure titled Prairie 36 Long Range Trawler dated August 1980 that had the following specifications:
Length Overall - 36’0”
Draft - 3’3”
Beam - 13’0”
Freeboard Forward - 7’2”
Height Above Waterline to Top of Mast - 19’9”
Height Above Waterline to Top of Windshield Rail - 14’0”

My findings were as follows:
Length Overall - 40’7”
(this includes 29” of bowsprit + 7” of rail beyond the bowsprit and a 24” swimstep)
Draft - 3’7”
Beam - Rub rail to Rub rail = 13’9”, Sheer = 13’4”, Waterline = 12’1”
Freeboard Forward Top of Bowsprit to Waterline - 7’1”
Height Above Waterline to Top of Mast - 19’2”
Height Above Waterline to Top of Windshield Rail - 13’9”
Height Above Waterline to Top of Bimini- 16’9”

If you compare there are some differences but I think all very close. I hope other Prairie 36 owners or potential buyers find this useful.
