Here's a funny question for ya.

So, the other day I was washing down my boat. I couldn't get over the amount of bird poo on my deck. I later went to the store to buy a plastic owl (this is no joke). Later in the day one of the people in the marina tells me that an owl sits atop my mast almost every night, hence the poo. Now what do I do? It's not as if a plastic owl is going to help. Just my luck other owls would think that it's some sort of owl strip club, pole and all. Any ideas?

I bought "Bird Spikes" and glued them to the top of my mast to deter an Osprey and mourning doves from perching there. They do work. I broke them into smaller pieces to glue them to the masthead. The marine stores handle them. I also hear a hoot owl in the neighborhood just before sunrise each morning.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
