Muskrats chewing through cables to the power wedge

Recommended Posts

I have had muskrats chew through the cables to the power wedge actuators behind the boat underneath the swim platform. We were able to fix the wiring -- then the next night they chewed through the cables again. There may be to many muskrats to trap. Any other ideas

happened to a friends brand new tri-toon pontoon. The little buggers were eating the wires and after inspecting, he found that they were dining in the back of the boat and left all the clam shells. never saw the critter again :)

Had the same issue a few years back on our pontoon- they chewed everything they could get to underneath, wiring, fuel line, you name it. A shop owner I dealt with told me he used clear lacquer in an aerosol form and coated the bellows on his I/O when they chewed through it- supposedly they don't like the taste. After our boat was repaired I sprayed all the wiring with some and it hasn't been touched since. Don't know if it works but it's worth a shot.
