Re: Mouse on the boat?
Can't imagine having a rodent in my boat and the consequences they leave behind, chewed on wires, hoses, leaving feces behind in areas you can't remove, eating any foods left in the boat... if you poison the vermin then you will be left with the stench and smell of a dead animal perhaps for possibly months.
My recommendation is to make it uncomfortable for it to remain in the boat... perhaps use a fogger or any chemicals used to remove vermin from homes, etc. Outside of bringing a cat on-board there really isn't an easy way to rid them from boats besides traps, etc.
For this reason we do not leave any foods in the boat that would give them reasons to look for crumbs, break into boxes of foods, etc. we clean the sole, galley, throw trash out each time we're out on the boat and carry any leftover foods home.
Good luck on the hunt.
