Question Bats in the sails

How many have had the bat problem in thier sails? I noticed the droppings near the mast a few days ago and raised the main, and lord and behold I had at least 10 of the little rodents in the main makeing it there home. So instead of killing them I made a thing called a bat box. Hopefully this will keep them out of the sails, also put some moth balls in the sail folds.
Last night sitting in the pilot house I watched them come and go into the bat box for a couple of hours. I am not sure but i think I now have 20 of the little critters moved in. I will not put running water in for them no matter how much they want it, he he he have to draw a line someplace!!
