Boat Reviews By Owners

1978 -- 29' 0" PRAIRIE BOAT WORKS

Model: CC-29

Cockpit: Medium sized cockpit... Large flybridge with excellent visibility... Great for 8 people for day cruising and wonderful for 2 people for extended cruising.

Cabin: Spacious upper salon, galley, and lower helm... very large lower v-berths with drawers below, hanging locker, and head vanity and shower three steps down... Great for extended cruising.

Construction: Hull is built of 70's solid handlaid fiiberglass... hull is 27 years old... one quarter sized blister repaired 2005. Cannot speak of any weak or problem construction areas.

Handling: She handles as any other keeled displacment hull trawler. Yes, she does have some roll in a busy seaway, but controllable with rudder.

Engine Room: My CC-29 powered by Perkins 4108(50hp). Fine power unit must double double heat exchanger capacity for this engine to perform correctly or overheating will occur...otherwise fine. No problem cruising at hull speed loaded for extended cruising. Fuel consumption @ 6.75kts is 1.26 GPH of diesel running both Perkins and Onan 5.5K genset running A/C.

General Comments: Because of her size MV "Mikabel" is ideal for all kinds of uses... we use her for afternoon cruises, day cruises as well as weekend and extended cruising. We find the the larger the vessel... the more prep. it takes before you can be on the water and enjoying yourself... Who wants to have to plan a week in advance?
