Had an 8 foot Moccasin swim at my boat yesterday. I put the trolling motor on 5, then 10. My buddy in the back hit the surface of the water with his rod tip to scare it away. It came at us faster now and we started the engine and started driving but it had already curled up in the little splash well thing between the batteries and the motor. Then it started to come out onto the deck and my buddy used to butt of his flipping stick to fling it overboard and it swam away. It was terrifying. What happened to 'you leave them alone and they leave you alone'? Has anyone had this experience? It was like it had rabies or something. Biggest snake I've ever seen. I might start bringing a net with a long handle in case this happens again. The only thing that makes sense is maybe when my buddy splashed the water with his rod it actually attracted the snake, like a dying rodent or something.

If it was that big it was probably not a moccasin. If a land snake it was seeking refuge on the boat.

Hmm, never seen a moccasin do that. Diamondback water snakes do that all the time though. Have had it happen several times.

Probably this. Typical adult moccasin are about 3'-4'. They are more short and fat. Usually dark green/black in color.

Either way I wouldnt want them in the boat.

You missed a chance at an awesome video. Instead of Snakes on a Plane it would be Snake on a Boat.

That gives me the eebie jeebies just reading your post. All snakes are deadly ones and deserve to die. I've broke many a rod tip on aggressive snakes charging the boat.

I had a few fall in my old aluminum 12 foot boat out of trees but never any in my big Skeeter. No Moccasins though just what I call water snakes. Mine were not the poisonous type. I agree a cotton mouth is what I call a moccasin but they are usually shorter n very thicker bodied snakes.
