The ingenious design of the Andersen bailer results in maximum suction capacity and makes them very easy to use. You simply open the windward bailer after tacking and close it again before the next track. The result is a dry dinghy. Should you need a different sized bailer, we stock the full range of Andersen bailers.

Kits for the Super Max contain the External mounting rubber gaskets, internal rubber gaskets and rivets for reassembly. Bailer girds are available and keep lines from getting sucked into the bailer. Grids are not included as part of the Service Kits.

NorthFix Pump Cleat

NorthFix Pump Cleat

A unique, hard-to-find, pivoting cleat that allows the line to run freely until it is pulled out of alignment. Frequently used for spinnaker halyard pump-up systems. The halyard exits the mast, goes through a cam cleat and usually a fairlead. Then there is some space before the halyard runs through the pump cleat. On the line in this space there is a trap handle on a block, which you hold to pump. The tail of the halyard then continues through a fairlead or cheek block and is taken up by shock cord. As you pump the handle, the pump-cleat goes out of alignment holding the tail and causing the halyard to take up through the cam cleat. As you lower the handle, the pump cleat aligns again allowing the shock cord to take up the tail through the pump cleat, readying the system for another pump if needed.

Designed for use with 5/32 inch line.
