Snipe bailing

Hey everybody just looking for some advice on my first sailboat. Its a 1970s snipe dingy with rear cutouts i think for bailing. My neigbor said i need floatation bags because after i dump it will just sit at the water surface and as fast as i bail it will fill. This dosent make sense to me design wise. Any info on if i need the bags would be great as ive only crewed on bigger boats than this. Thanks

Re: Snipe bailing

Mine did not have those but my understanding is that they help remove the water after capsize. you right the boat and sail off and the holes act as a self-bailer. you should also have a self-bailer in the bottom of the boat. some of the early wood boats had the cutout and air bags in the bow. the fiberglass ones have flotation under the deck and should not need to have air bags. it depends on the style of cockpit you have as to the bailing methods. I would suggest that you capsize it close to shore and practice righting the boat before heading out and getting in trouble way out from shore
