Another choice is to go to a plumbing supply store and buy a plastic threaded one. I don't have the required thread size at the top of my head but will try to get that to you. You will just have to drill the small holes to drain the water when the plug is up.

There have been a couple listed on eBay recently, however I have to caution you as one sold for over $70. Not sure why someone would pay that much, but good for the seller.

OK, I saw the posting. I have the screw in type.
I never had a problem with it, but it seems others
have a problem with the bailer getting stuck.
I believe a little Vaseline or WD40 resolves the problem,
but sand will adhere to the threads so I don't grease
mine to make things worse.
I wash it well with plain water (not salt water).
Thank you for your post.

I purchased a brass one for $20 from a back yard boat dealer who has been in the business since the 60s.
I consider myself lucky. I was looking for a deck bailer screw with chain and even that part goes for $22 retail.
You can find the deck screw with chain online but its expensive $22 for a little screw.
I'm sure it costs $70 with the housing and the screw too if someone needs the whole assembly.
