Question

I'm looking to replace the self bailer on a Force 5 sailboat. They don't make the part anymore. It goes in the floor of the deck just behind the centerboard trunk. The old bailer worked like this gadget. It had a float ball. The only difference that I can see is the old one had a rubber stopper that plugged it from the upper side when not using. Surely I could find a stopper that would fit this? Do you think this would work?

Top Answer

I think that this will work, if you can find the right size "stopper". I have been using these for around 15 yrs, in my '94 Dixie fishing boat. I get average 5 yrs then the soft plastic circle that the ball engages hardens (I guess) and they start leaking. Other than that, I am very satisfied with these.

Answer

I didn't. It comes with a rubber casket Just be careful not to tighten it to much. That thing is plastic and will break. I've been using that type of scupper for years. Works well. When boat sits still in the water you will occasionally have some come in the boat but will go back out as soon as you move. I bought plugs for the inside for when I leave it overnight in the water

Answer

The scupper is actually attached with stainless steel screws. However, I also used a 3-M marine sealant where the flange met the fiberglass, just to reduce water entry.

Question

is the pvc ball and plastic sleeve inside the hull or outside?

Asked on 05/15/2013 by bryan Last Name

Top Answer

It is out side the hull...very easy to install and you just have to get use to the gentle popping of the balls back into the sockets...Good product. I had to turn them one quarter turn as to not have to drill new holes but hasn't affected use...make sure you get the right size....small or BIG boats. Guy

Question

Will this valve fit over the Attwood flipper valve?

Asked on 05/30/2015 by Moses Coley

Top Answer

should mount in the same place after removing attwood valve. I would use a small amount of marine sealant in screw holes. or seal old mounting holes if they do not match new ones.

Question

if I overload my boat and they go underwater will they seal out the water? ijust removed the drain tubes on a 78 McKee its almost 2 inches thick do you buy 3 inch tubes and flange both ends?how much tube do you need to stick through to make the flange?can you squish it right to the transom?the old ones were just stuck in the hole and cut flush.how can you permanently seal one below the waterline?

Asked on 07/05/2014 by eric eric

Top Answer

Yes both ends need to be flanged, and Jamestown sells the flanging tool. I sealed the tube holes with epoxy and then generously used 5200 when I inserted the tube and flanged it. You need about a quarter of an inch for the flange. One end will already be flanged. I insert the tubes and mark them for cutting, and cut them with a dowel inside the tube so that is does not compress. There is no good answer for the tubes under water. I have used the ping pong scuppers and they are OK, but they get clogged a lot, then they are wedged open. Atwood makes a duckbill scupper that some people like.

I8 ' alumunin hull, with a drain plug, on the inside , Not a self bailing boat , will this work and elimante the drain plug....?

Asked on 11/14/2013 by morgan Le Blanc

Top Answer

Probably not...these are made for boats that have a self bailing deck and or low transom in the back. Most of the time they are above the water line. Best, Guy

Will this work on a 16ft Carolina Skiff?

Asked on 11/27/2011 by Dan French

Top Answer

Hi Dan, I would asume they would work...I have an 18' Palm Beach and the size of the bailing hole is almost a perfect match....the only problem is that the predilled holes in the scuttles don't exactly line up with the 4 pre existing holes from the scuttle flaps I had...They are in but about 30 degrees away from pointing straight down....still get very little water if any pushing back inside. I have gotten use to the gentle clicking sound of the balls moving in and out of place. The seem real sturdy...will just to have to drill 4 new off set holes in the scuttles rather than in the transom. Thanks Guy
