what do you guys who keep your boats in a slip use to keep birds away from your boat. I am tired of hosing bird droppings off of my boat. Is there anything that works?

Ditto on the Owl decoys Jeff, but not sure how good they work

The owls seem to help. Need to make sure you move them to differant spots on the boat from time to time. That is what the instructions on the plastic owls say to do. LOL

I see the owls all the time, but wonder how well they work. Maybe there is a cottage industry that trains and sells live owls that are trained to kill pigeons on sight, but have the discipline to hang it over the side when they themselves have to go. I can dream at least. LOL

I had an owl decoy once and the gulls had absolutely no respect for it; however, it turned out to be extremely effective as it gave the gulls a new target to $#!+ on.

Put a toy iguana or toy plastic snake on your deck.

I use the owl above my boat but I'v seen the iguana and kept teasing the little kids it was real.

I agree on the fake snake...just make sure you let your wife know about it BEFORE she decides oneday to clean the spiderwebs off the lift...could lead to one ****** off wife...and one VERY DEAD fake snake.

Maninthaboat. Maybe it has something to do with your boat being the first one at the dock so it is the first target. LOL

Yeah, it probably has something to do with the name of the boat. I think the birds want to show me who the "real" chingador is.

We use the owls on the deck of our house in Galveston and they seem to work pretty well. The older ones are a little cheesy looking, but the new ones are actually pretty spooky looking. Give it a shot.

We bought and put up bird spikes all around the top of our boat lift. They work great. The cost was a couple hundred, but the install is really easy with a caulk gun and the glue provided by the spike distributor. Check out the plastic spikes at www.birdbgone.com.

Good luck.

Put one of those broadcast feeders on your deck and have it spray bird seed all over your neighbor's deck......... Just kidding - I am just sulking because I don't have a bayhouse or dock to get bird s*it all over!!!!
