Welcome to the 'TECHNICAL TIPS - ENGINES' section of the SOA Website.
Almost every Shrimper has an engine. Whether it be small outboard or a Yanmar 1GM10 diesel inboard, they all require annual maintenance.
Follow the links below to find tips and information on basic servicing, lay-up procedures and even what to do when things go wrong.
If your outboard is beyond saving and you have to buy one, the 2008 survey results might help with your choice.
New information is always welcome and should be sent to email@example.com
