Prawn Trawler "Lowanna"
« on: November 18, 2013, 09:09:02 AM »

Hi there, (another prawn trawler  O0 ) "Lowanna" was a 54' trawler carvel hull, the plans were supplied by the original Designer and Builder Kevin Massey of Brisbane Australia.
Started the build in August 1994 the start of our tiger prawn season in the Gulf of Carpentaria , same as the other planked on frame then the ribs were installed and a couple coats of resin inside the hull to seal her(sorry didn't take many photo's of the build at different stages ??).The deck was plyed and all the winches ,gantries etc all made to scale.
After she is finished she was given a float test in the trawlers prawn dip tank.
Thanks for viewing.......
