Re: Otter problem, help!

Update on the Otter situation:

Step 1: Remove access.
So we believe our furry friend has been entering the boat from the port side. We moved our hanging step and the stairway away and that seemed to stop the beast for now. We have had consistent North wind lately which pushes our boat off the dock. I fear that when the South comes around again (soon) that he may enter from off of one of my fenders. So far so good, a few days without any otter impact.

Standing by with a ScatMat and Fox Urine.

Thank you
for everyone's ideas. I have an ever escalating response package(s) standing by. Your creative ideas are the foundation

Another marina buddy told me the otter family is all camped under a tarp'ed up sailboat just a few fingers piers away. The owner is going to have a nasty surprise when he returns next month. I think I will have the dock master try and contact him.
