Re: Shutter

We kept our ships extremely clean.... therefore there was no food for any kind of vermin....
Never saw any rats or mice on any of the ships I was on....

Worth £600.000 in scrap
However how much will it cost to fumigate, remove and dispose by cremation of rats via the boiler room, disinfect before it will become remotely habitual for a "Holiday Yacht"

Re: Shutter

Not fussed about the value lol. It would be hassle selling it and then finding a house to buy lol.
I'd rather moor it off the coast somewhere and clean it up lol

Re: Shutter

Just thinking that you would need to fund the upkeep as it wont be cheap for annual costs

Fund it by forming a limited company - then you could float it on the stock exchange  Grin Grin

Rat eradication is a booming business these days, couple of buckets of pellets dropped from a helicopter cures the problem.
The clearing of rats from South Georgia (size of Wales) went OK
