    New experience

    After 28 years of houseboating, we had a new experience last weekend - a mouse on the boat. We were able to easily trap and remove it from the boat.

    I have never known of mice on a houseboat before - insects of every kind, snakes, frogs, even a raccoon, but not a mouse.

    Never a mouse but left engine hatch open and a river otter visited! Smaller otter left tracks EVERYWHERE. Got lucky no real damage before we found hatch open and otter gone to get family .

    In my case, squirrels. I discovered they like black vinyl, including bilge hoses and boat fenders. White vinyl they didn't touch.
    She's a tired old barge but she's paid for!

    We discovered a mouse several years ago while we were tied out. Our trusty boat cat was suddenly focused on a hold on the front deck. We were beached the night before, then tied out 4 point the next day. My theory is the little guy came aboard while we were beached. Never saw one before or since.
