    BAILER is correct. It's how you bind hay together into a bale.

    Oh. I see I've tried to define BALER instead of BAILER. Darn. But 'BALER' doesn't seem to be a word? Now, I'm confused. When my grandfather and uncles used to bail hay, they drove a machine around with a baling attachment on it. We always called (and spelled it) as BAILER. Oh well.

      (And BAILER certainly works better than LIBRAE, the only other word that design215 suggested. It also works better than BLAIRE, the name I tested when I thought this might be a proper name.)

      I'm surprised BALER doesn't show up in your dictionary, but at least Wikipedia has it.

      [Perhaps at some point change the clue to something which matches BAILER, though -- maybe person who keeps a boat from sinking?]
