Blockheads love DIY projects.

Over the years, we’ve seen some creative takes on bailers. You know what gets us excited? Not the $20 red bailers you can buy from the store (yawn!), but the duct-taped, painted, stickered-up, and completely customized Arizona Iced Tea and bleach bottles — especially the ones with the custom thingamajigs to keep them secured on your boat, not slipping under your foot while you’re mid-roll-tack.

We want to see yours! Show us your custom bailer: Submit a photo of your custom bailer by filling out the form below. The most useful, creative, fun, handy, or inspirational bailer will win a Blockheads Dry Bag and buff! Judges will be looking to see how individual your bailer is to your personality & boat and also how you keep it away from your feet. Make it quick! The deadline to submit a photo is June 28, 2022. Must be a Harken Blockheads Member under the age of 25 to win. Not a member? Join here.

Just don’t blame us when your teammates get stomach aches from drinking an entire gallon of Arizona Iced Tea in one afternoon…
