    Pure curiosity, but how large?
    Living in the country we are used to finding all sorts of mice, squirrels, jackdaws and horrible cluster flies who have taken up abode in our attics. Not so nice was the dead rat in the garden last week, body measured in at just under 12 inches, plus a lengthy tail. Probably killed by poison put down by neighbour.

    If voting changed anything, they wouldn't let you do it.

    Update. Rat caught this morning in a cage trap with chocolate and ham as bait.

    Boat deep cleaned twice, once by charter staff and once by me for good measure.

    Anchored, well from shore, in a lovely bay. All well with the world again.

    Thanks for all the advice.

    Shaun.

    I think Fray Bentos themselves have.
    I'd rather be tethered to a pad eye than tethered to an iPad.

    Glad your rat free, if you should ever find yourself in this situation again and I'm sure you won't, make sure you've got every survivalists favourite staple...... peanut butter, it's the go to food to bait a rat trap. Also good to have should the rat knaw through the hull...... don't show the wife this bit! I can't talk, still trying to get my wife through Portsmouth harbour! Glad it all worked out for you.
