We have a plastic owl and it worked to keep the hawks away but it invites the gulls to a party.
Worked 4 hours one day to get the major guano of the boat and now ready for another several hours. The bimini is covered and we don't know how to get it off since the bimini is over the fly bridge and too high to reach even with a long handled brush.
My husband is going to try oxalic acid today. We have the suggestion that we try On/Off but to be very, very careful to wash it off quickly on anything that it touches. We also have the suggest to try mylar streamers that people use in their gardens to keep birds away. In my desperation I bought several child's windmills and duct taped them to the boat. My husband it going to the boat today (it is over an hour away in Rockland Harbor. I will let you know what happens today.
