Chrysler Mutineer Bailer?
 
I restored a Mutt and when I went to launch it off the trailer I forgot to raise the bailer and jeopardized the integrity of the nylon insert (screwed it up). Does anyone know who made these? They are round and you push them down to bail water and pull up to close?

contact Nickels Boatworks or Nickels Boats or something like that. They build the current models and should have info for older boats.
Good luck.

I have, and they do not have any and know what I am talkig about, but do not know who the mfr was.....I am looking for a plunger type bailer that was utilized on Chrysler Buccaneers, Mutineers and Man O Wars....

RigRite carries some odd older stuff. If they can't help it looks like you're in scrounge or replacement mode.

I found the attached .xls file on one of the websites featuring the Bucanneer. I cannot give proper credit to the author as I no longer have the link. Perhaps he or she will see this and come forward to take credit and comment. It's possible the author was "GLEN" who signed the attached .doc file which is a similar text description. I used this to fabricate a pair of these. Sorry, no photos as I later sold the boat. My version was made with a diferent pvc fitting I found which slip fit the inside diameter of the stainless steel housing which eliminated the need for the "A" and "B" O-ring. I also undercut the pvc for the "C" O-ring and used a little rubber cement to hold it in place. Worked as well as the original but they all leak a little.

OK, so the attachments won't attach. PM me and we'll find a way.
