We went down to our boat last night and scared a large bird off our boat. Its either a double breasted cormorant or a common loon. This morning when we woke up we spent an hour trying to scrub the bird doo and partially diagested fish off our boat but not very well . Since we the weather was calling for rain later and the wind was kicking we went for a quick sail to turkey point and back. Then we went in to the field doc tried to clean up with simple green and a hose. The deck still has gunk on it. Anyone have suggestions on how to do a better job of cleaning the deck?
The more important question is does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep the bird off our boat. We thought about hanging something that spins or maybe a pie plate from a shroud or maybe getting plastic owl which works for some birds. Anyone know a method that works?
We've used Boat Brite Bird and Spider droppings stain remover with pretty decent success. Stuff that's we'd spent forever scrubbing either came out completely or lightened up enough that we were much happier than before.
We have no affiliation with them, just saying it worked pretty well for us.
