When we were tied up to Russ's dock in Punta Gorda unbeknownst to us we acquired an unwanted passenger, a rat! Russ spotted it in the evening after we left Punta Gorda and were anchored at Tom's bridge. He saw it run by in the twilight and we searched the boat but couldn't find the rat. The next morning we opened up the main sail to find a large hole chewed into it..
