Deck and Above
Welcome to the 'TECHNICAL TIPS - DECK & ABOVE' section of the SOA Website.
This section is mainly all about the rig, the main source of power for your Shrimper. For the racing enthusiast, rig alterations are necessarily restricted to ensure that all boats remain one-design. Information on Shrimper 19 Class Rules and sail measurement can be found under About the SOA.
Those interested in more leisurely pursuits enjoy greater freedom for improvement and these pages will feature ideas to make your Shrimper sailing easier and more enjoyable, especially for the short handed. Also included are a few alternatives on that major topic of discussion amongst owners, how to get the mast up.
