Andersen automatic bailers are made of
stainless-steel, guaranteeing you many years of trouble free service. 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. All
Andersen automatic bailers are as close to being perfectly sealed as a bailer
can be. Their robust design requires a minimum of maintenance.
The Andersen automatic bailer is extremely rigid and will give you many years
of trouble free sailing. However, should your bailer develop a leak or be
damaged, new replacement parts are available. The gasket seal in your
bailer can be worn out after extended use, but they are easy to replace. Gasket kits are available for servicing all Andersen bailers. Replacement Gasket
Kits for outside mounted bailers (as used on the Sonar) contain the Internal rubber gaskets
only. Grids are not included as part of the Service Kits.
