Abstract: It is shown $ \vphantom {\widehat {\widehat {\widehat {\widehat {\widehat {\widehat {\widehat X}}}}}}}$ that there exists a compact set $ X$ in $ \mathbb{C}^N$ ($ N\geq 2$) such that $ \widehat X\setminus X$ is nonempty and the uniform algebra $ P(X)$ has a dense set of invertible elements, a large Gleason part, and an abundance of nonzero bounded point derivations. The existence of a Swiss cheese $ X$ such that $ R(X)$ has a Gleason part of full planar measure and a nonzero bounded point derivation at almost every point is established. An analogous result in $ \mathbb{C}^N$ is presented. The analogue for rational hulls of a result of Duval and Levenberg on polynomial hulls containing no analytic discs is established. The results presented address questions raised by Dales and Feinstein.
