Pro tip, add a couple beavers to the mix. Nothing adds years to a boat better then a tight roll and a barn full of vermin.I store my rafts in the barn. Seemingly, I am also housing rabbits. This weekend, I noticed they ate the rubber out of my fishing net. Will they eat my hypalon raft?
That was awsome!Not if you eat them first..... Wait till Feburry and shoot them with a bow. It takes a month or so of hard freeze to kill the parasites and fleas. Then once you skin them the trick is to freeze them in salt water for a few weeks. MMM better than chicken.
Hopefully those mice chewed through a Saturn and not a good boat.We've had mice chew into a PVC cataraft and then through the baffle. Also paco pads. Luckily we blow up our boats every year before the first trip to test them out! Patching the baffle was a pain. Pretty sure it was glue-huffer trying to get deep into that chemical bliss after his lover got into the green stuff.
Since then, we've been storing everything in a mouse-proof enclosed trailer or a platform in the middle of a metal shed, with no vectors to climb or jump to it.
