I Cant Sleep
For several years now I have suspected that there where many animals swimming around in the area directly encompasing the hull of my boat. A few days ago my fears where proven justified when some of the critters had managed to get on board and proceeded to prowl through and sniff my rations. While I havent actually seen any of the creatures (it happens at night and the lights are off) I am sure that this has been going on for quite some time. I believe that these gnome-like creatures are able to magically move from underneath the hull, through the hull, and into the cabin. Is there any special type of bottom paint that would deter them?

I'd throw some chicken gizzards over the side to keep them at bay or you could just invite one of Giu's aunts over for the evening?

Don't encourage him...I think he went off his meds... the voices seem to be speaking to him again.... ;)

Wrap your boat with heavy duty aluminum foil, top to bottom, that ought to do the trick.:rolleyes:

I've heard good things about Narconon . . . might reduce the occurance of your gnome attacks. :cool:

Remember, before you do anything, you'll have to file an enviormental impact statement, get clearance from PETA, and check with your local Wicca coven that you aren't messing with their familars.

Could be mermaids, might wanna leave out milk & cookies instead.

set a cage trap, catch one, take it to someone who knows what it is and what kind of "shtuff" you can leave out to keep them away - usually something with a smell that they don't like, like that of a predator. Where are you - on a lake, large bay, ocean - US - East or West coast? How about adopting a dog from the SPCA?

This is what I'm thinking. Get on E-Bay and get a Star Wars Light Sabre. Hide under your covers and burst out every 17 minutes or so with a 1,000,000 candlepower spotlight, screaming and flourishing the Light Sabre. I guarantee you will be able to sleep soundly by the third night.
