Ball type bailers are OK, bit do get stuck and then completely defeat the object. Elephant trunks IMO is the only way to go.

Had a ball type bailer on my 5.4 Searider. Worked fine - but they do get fouled if the boat is left afloat. Then then get stuck open or closed. Best to have a trunk if the boat is left afloat.
