Welcome To The Shrimper Owners Association


Our website is designed and managed by the members of the SOA to provide interest, information and enjoyment for SOA members and others who are attracted to our very special gaff rigged Shrimpers.
With well over 1100 Shrimpers now afloat and over 600 of owners members of the SOA, we must be doing something right. 

If you are an owner and not yet a member, please come and join us. Membership is open to the owners of all Shrimper models, 17, 19 and 21, If you are not yet an owner, we would encourage you to take the step by purchasing either a new or previously owned Shrimper....1100 owners can't be wrong.

To learn more about the advantages of SOA membership please place your cursur over the 'About the SOA ' button above and select from the drop down menu.


 Our Shrimpers are produced by Cornish Crabbers LLP. 'Cornish Crabbers' and 'Cornish Shrimpers' are registered trade marks.  The SOA is completely independent of CC. LLP. The content and views expressed on this website are SOA generated and are not necessarily those of CC LLP.

This website has been designed for ease of use for both the viewer and for those who manage the content.  In order to achieve this we have incorporated a sophisticated content management system that permits each individual section of the site to be updated by a volunteer to ensure all content is kept up to date, fresh and accurate.  All of the SOA Regional Hon. Secs. have control of their respective pages and there are 'SOA Web Sec's' for the special pages including Shrimper Sales, Technical Tips, Logs etc...

We have incorporated a 'keyword' search system accessible from everywhere within the website, so for example, if you require information on 'centreplates'  or  'Wales',  typing those words into the search box ( top right of each page ) will deliver all the related articles in our archives.  (Please note that building the archives is a lengthy job and processing all of our records will take some time to complete.) 

The photos you see above are taken by our members and are examples of many stored in our image library. New photos are always welcome and will be added to the 'Member's Photos' section complete with relevant details to aid the search facility. The very best will be displayed on the 'Shrimper Gallery' page'

Please note if not already installed on your pc you will need a pdf file reader to view some linked files.
