It's been a while since I read that one...Your liturary repuitar is impressive!

If we're drifting..perhaps another reason to have them would be to keep those intruders from getting on the boat. (Slicker than goose ****!)

Has anyone seen those slowmo pics of great whites chomping seals?..I bet they couldn't resist a chicken on the line!
Finally someone is taking this thread seriously!

Ok, now, Ping, as I recall, was a cormorant, I've seen cormorants poop. It's impressive. I don't care how much fish they catch, I don't want them doing it on my boat - at least not until they understand the principle behind a composting toilet!

"All but one mentioned rodents which were also eaten."
Guinea pig. Seriously, it is a delicacy in Equador, split and grilled. And there's now at least one organization trying to push them as "livestock" to solve some hunger problems in Africa, since they're fairly portable livestock that need little space to get started.
Duck is more problematic, it can be "migratory waterfowl" and protected by hunting and ecology regulations in too many places these days.

I vote for Ducks... just think, in light airs you could harness them up to the bow like a 20 mule team and save on diesel!

Cheers,
Jim

Geese make really good watch dogs and have big wings for generating wind.

Did you know the Incas used to pack the guinea pigs in mud before throwing them in the fire? That way when done, the fur would come right off. Mmmmm. The idea behind the small meal sized livestock is about not needing refridgeration. Rather aplicable to the boating scene. Even if you have a fridge, better to have more space for beer....
Next will be to come up with a pocket sized milking animal.

When I was in college we had a processing plant near where I lived. We "rescued" a chicken and kept him in a coop. It turns out they may do well transporting in those small coops but long term "lucky chicken" didn't do so well.

Probably because it was a hen and you were calling it "him". Girls don't like that sort of thing.
