Boat hook bailer, you gotta have one

Bridgenorth bailer

Friday bonus gizmo: you can lock the two part handle open to get a sturdy 5’ boat hook, or you can apply some pump action and suck the last drop out a bilge or dinghy. The fluid stays in the handle until you pump again, so the thing can also be used as a ‘manual’ power washer, or a wicked squirt gun. Or to test the CFR/NEMA rating on your electronics (there, topic maintained). It works like a champ and is so darn well made that I’m worried the inventor isn’t asking enough money for it. He sells them for $44 at Bridgenorth Bailer with free shipping (maybe only in Canada, the site isn’t clear). Have a good weekend!

    I am wondering if you have a highred photo of this item that I can use in an article for Marinalife Magazine — we will put your site down as the source. Thanks!
    PS — fun site!

    Alicia, this entry is five years old and the link to the company is dead. But I have seen the same product being sold by a bigger company at boatshows. I can’t remember which, but maybe a reader will know.
    I still the sample boat hook bailer and it still works well.

    how can I order this bailer / boat hook

  6. Ben Ellison Ben Ellison says:

    Looks like the boat hook bailer got taken over by TaylorMade some time since 2005 but then discontinued. However, this company claims to have a couple in stock, on sale too:
