After a great night's sleep at the Château Relaxeau I went upstairs to say hello to Mal and he had the coffee brewing already, knowing what a caffeine addict I was. We chatted for a long time but soon after the rental car arrived I departed for distant Nanny Cay and my reunion with ”Zanshin”.
The boat was tucked away in the far corner on the old tennis court and once I opened up the hatch to look inside I was more than a little dismayed to immediately see sign of mice or rats! I'd removed everything edible aboard, including all the spices and vacuum-sealed beans; so I can't figure out what had led them aboard to stay for several days. They had chewed through a number of visible items, and I was immediately worried that they might have gnawed their way through important (and inaccessible) items such as electrical lines. I knew that I'd have to open up every single cubic foot inside the boat and explore. Ahh well, the joys of boat ownership.

Mice droppings All the mice left behind were these little pellets all over the place and various items that had been gnawed on.
