yes he was some rat. We told the unfortunate boat owner he was too valuable to kill. One that smart with training would have been worth a fortune. Seriously though. In Rural New Zealand rats are not uncommon. Mostly we keep them out of the house but occasionally in the winter they try to move in. We use a poison to kill them. It is a block bait and an important feature is that after taking the bait and before they die they get very thirsty so they leave the house to find water. Thus no smelly carcasses. So long as they didn't have access to water to drink on the boat I would expect they would leave the boat to find fresh water. Might be worth a try.
