Dryer sheets all over the boat is an equally effective answer. Plus your boat smells nice and fresh when it's time to get it out again.

Sorry but I'm no longer a believer in moth balls or dryer sheets. This summer I went to pull the chevelle out of the garage and saw a mouse scampering away from underneath. Popped the trunk and there was a mouse nest. Funny thing is there were moth balls and dryer sheets both within inches of the nest. The car went under a frame off resto so I'm still wondering where they entered from. it is a convertable though. I set 3 mouse traps around the car and check daily, iv caught 3 so far.

well that answers it. One or the other not both...they cancel each other out!:D

Sorry, couldn't resist. At least they were in the trunk and not the ulpostery!

I use a box of moth balls in aluminum pie pans and then place sticky traps around the wheels and at the opening of the overhead door. Knock on wood, 3 years no issues.
