There's an interesting idea.

Re: Self bailing cockpit?

I have self bailing on my dinghy, but self bailing does not work very well when going at slow bells. I agree with "Seaduction," self bailing means do it your self.

I know on my seasprite, the hoses that connect the selfbailers run to opposite sides of the hull. The Port side drain leads to a starboard side throughull and vice versa. This keeps the low side throughhull from backing up into the lowside drain.

I was wondering the same thing myself

imasaluki Not familiar with the Lark, but in my O'Day you have to be moving for self bailing to occur. The drain plugs should be plugged in the water.

Self bailing cockpit?

So after buying my second ever C-Lark 14' sailboat, I was given many of the original paperwork with the sale of this boat. In one of the original sales brochures for the C-Lark by Clark Boat Co., it says that my boat has a "Self Bailing cockpit - The cockpit floor is above the waterline, thus insuring instant draining. The centerboard trunk and the holes in the transom well act as an exit for any water that enters the cockpit".

Right, sounds to make sense to me. There are two holes in the transom that can be plugged with those brass and rubber boat drain plugs. With these out, water seems to rush into the cockpit. So, is this only for draining the water from the boat after use, or to keep the cockpit "dry" (ha ha) while sailing? I've never really had much experience with a "self bailing cockpit" on a smaller craft like this before.
