  • in reply to: Bailer Repair #26246

    Hi guys,

    Sorry I had issues posting earlier, details as follows.

    We have had an issue with one of the bailer in our boat, Duffin. It was stuck and in attempting to free it has accidentally been pulled out.

    The bailer is an Andersen Super Medium, inside mounted, placed in a recess just aft of the dagger casing. (1 of 2)

    The idea for a temporary repair is a bunch of duck tape, internally.

    For the long term repair the plan is a 3.6mm (possibly 2mm) piece of marine-ply West epoxied into the same location with screws in place. The bailer will then sit on this new mount, screwed in as normal.

    On the outside of the hull, to fill the ‘gap’ around the external bailer (due to the recessed mounting) the plan was to use some Teroson 620 to ‘fill the gap’.

    Do you think this approach is reasonable?

    The hull is newly painted hence we do not want to repair it externally.

    Any feedback and advice is greatly appreciated as I am new to GP14 repairs. Thank you and sorry about the formatting issues above, I can’t seem to delete them.
