If you use moth balls put them in a disposable plastic dish or else it will be a long time before your boat doesn't smell like grama's basement.. I put them in butter dishes or something I can throw away.. But I usually keep the boat on the lift during winters and don't see any rats in the area. Also hang bags of damp rid to help with the dampness..

My came without the vent and I finally made one from black plastic. The material I used was too thin and didn't turn out as well as I would have liked. Creating an acceptable piece is on the list this year.

I use moth balls in aluminum pie pans and sticky glue traps around the wheels

Sorry to see that kind of damage.

That really sucks to see! This is something I worry about every winter. I always put dryer sheets down. They seem to work quite well and it doesn't leave a horrible smell like moth balls. I use them in the cabin, our cabin garage, and the boat every winter and have never had an issue. Oh yeah did I mention it smells way better than moth balls

Dang! Now I am going to have to pull the cover off my boat, throw in the dryer sheets, some mouse poison and start worrying some more.

I was told by a friend that white dial soap shavings help keep mice/rats away. I take a couple of bars and shave them up via cheese grater and spread them evenly on the floor of the boat.

It sounds goofy but its cheap, easy to vacuum up (as long as its dry), smells good, and has worked the past 4 years in two different garage settings.

I've heard about dryer sheets too, might be along the same line.

I've also heard about having small tin compartments for baking bread filled with kitty litter / moth balls work.
