Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical Some questions about my new World Re: Re: Some questions about my new World – bailers

As I recall, the plastic bailers are less likely to harm the crew when/if the boat capsizes – you would normally sail with them open, and the outboard position means you would easily catch them scrambling back into the boat. So plastic bailers were normally fitted.

Incidentally, they are pretty essential in the World.

hope that helps
