Formerly called Elvstrom Bailers, these bailers use the boat's motion to create a Venturi effect which drains water through the bottom of the moving boat.
They are commonly mounted in dinghies and racing canoes.
Bailing capacity can be increased by mounting the bailers in pairs.
Automatic Bailers come in versions where the flange mounts on the inner surface of the hull, and versions where the flange mounts on the outside of the hull.
These are the outside mounting models.
• Mini is designed specially for performance dinghies, where weight is of major concern
• Do not leave a dinghy equipped with an automatic bailer permanently in the water; a slow gasket leak could fill the boat
• On outside mounted bailers, removing the spring lever while in the water could allow the bailer to fall out
• Beware of open bailer edges when the dinghy is capsized
• Made of stainless steel
