Here is the cockpit bailer. It looks like it’s been fiberglass-ed in. It also looks like it is made out of metal. I thought the round circle might be just dirt, and it did chip out a bit, but it is pretty solid and hard. I don’t think I can use it for draining the cockpit. It looks like I need to remove the current plug and replace it.
I tried using a hammer and pry bar to chip at that goopy looking stuff holding it in, but it didn’t seem to make a dent. I also put some vise grips on there and tried to unscrew and it wouldn’t budge.
How am I going to get this off without damaging the boat? Any suggestions?
Here is a parts diagram from www.sailsportmarine.com. They sell it for $46 but they’re sold out at the moment.
Intensity sails (thanks My2Fish) has it for $34.99.
