    Years ago I read that clothes dryer sheets will discourage rodents. I put them in every compartment and down the center isle.
    I don't know if this is the only reason I have never had a problem but they are cheap and they make the boats smell great.

    I've heard that. I also read on a fishing boat forum one time that peppermint oil works.

    I used peppermint oil last year, smells amazing. It is very expensive for what you actually get. I read that it must be oil, not extract. Not sure why it matters....

    I had one that managed to jump aboard while tied up to a dock a few years ago.
    there are some real nice snap traps that keep the mouse inside a black body. they work great.

    if I had my boat in storage, I'd be using d-con around the ground and put a couple of snaptraps with peanut butter up in the boat just for good measure..

    I can't imagine the nightmare of tracking down some vital wire that's been chewed by the nasty lil b@stard! Good luck with the kill!

    Get them put back in David. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I caught the act before it got/gets to bad. Did a good clean up of boat and unit today, placed traps and bait around unit and got those electronic sound trap things someone suggested. Hopefully I won this war!!

    i have used dryer sheets and store my boat in an old barn on our farm... never had trouble once... i always make sure the cover is on and tight, and also use zest soap shavings on a margarine lid... i used mothballs once in my old boat and it stunk like mothballs for quite a while after storing it for the winter..
