Andersen has manufactured the automatic bailer since 1964. Andersen automatic
bailers are recognized by many dinghy sailors as effective and reliable
means of automatic bailing. 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. Service kits contain rubber gaskets and in some cases also includes the rivets for assembly. For specific bailer types, see the table below for what is included in the repair kit. Handle replacements and screen replacements are also available for certain bailers.
A much lower minimum operating speed than conventional and extensively used wedge-type bailers. Also has pumping capacity and less drag. The result is a drier, lighter and faster boat. Should the bailers catch any weed, it is easily removed by simply closing and opening the bailer. Designed for hulls between 5mm (5/32") and 8mm (5/16") thick.
Standard Bailer: These bailers with stainless steel guards are found on a wide
variety of dinghies. We also sell replacement SHA4155 round ring washer seals
for the plunger device and the SHA1551 5mm rubber mounting seal gasket for
mounting the bailer to the hull. These are available as the HA4155 Repair Kit.
Old HA4155 bailers usually only say "HA155" on them, but are the same
bailer. Fasteners and instructions included.
Advanced Bailer: The advanced self bailers Delta
shape has the advantage of reducing drag and turbulence. It offers superior
performance under extremes of roll and yaw and at slow speeds. We also
sell a service kit for the advanced bailer which includes a replacement chute
and seal. Fasteners and instructions included.
