The only reason my Javelin needs Anderson bailers is to let out the water that the Anderson bailers let in.

They leak when closed and when they are supposed to be open close themselves at any boat speed sufficient to make them bail properly.  I have to sail with my foot on one to keep it open.

The overpriced "service kit" turned out to be one single neoprene seal, which was the one between the moving bit and the stationary bit.  IThe new seal doesn't seem to have stopped the leaks when it's closed and is no help at all in keeping it open.

It's enough to make you buy a sensible boat with a double skinned hull and a self draining cockpit (like my V3000).

The Jav is great fun in a strong wind on a 3 sail reach and fantastic on the sea though - so pesky bailers I'll have to live with.
