The SCAMP (acronym of Small Craft Advisor Magazine Project) is a wooden or fiberglass hulled Balanced Lug rigged sailing dinghy. The boat is 11 ft 11 in (3.63 m) long, and capable of accommodating four persons on a daysail or one to two for overnighting or extended cruising.
But always our boats offered refuge from any threat, including summer storms, which we'd wait out beneath our boom tents. At night we'd read sea stories by oil lantern and sleep under a blanket of stars. ... For more SCAMP discussion visit our Scamp Forum here. SCAMP's FaceBook page is here.
And of course, like all small boats, a SCAMP can easily travel to windward at 60 mph, pulled on a small lightweight trailer by a small four-cylinder car. All in all, SCAMP is an unusual boat—an odd duck, both in appearance, and in its strange synthesis of big and small.
The SCAMP has proved itself to be an exceptionally safe boat even in heavier wind. With lots of buoyancy, extra ballast as water and weight in the centerboard, and an easily reefed sail it provides exceptional safety.
