I don't know if this is really a big deal for some of you overseas. I definitely have to practice exclusion to keep my boat safe. I was told that a rat can get in through a hole the size of a quarter. I had an infestation that came through a small break in a vent mesh barrier. Folds in a tarp are no match and might just be the dry and snug destination of choice. If you are going this route you might want to shake out the tarp and check the boat occasionally during the storage period.

The buggers in my garage would run behind my racks and freeze when I came into the garage. That was not an effective way to avoid Mr. Pellet Gun.
