Ive heard that the monofilament fishing line works,like running from the cops hitting a clothes line

How I would do the fishing line:

Make a web of fishing line that comes down in V-shape from the roof of your dock. Make a loop that would come down and connect over the nose of your boat, and secured with a plastic clip on the bow eye. You could even make a little boot that would slip over the nose as well.

And that sh1t can eat right into some paints and gelcoats depending on what their diet has been ..

Be a good host , seeing he likes your boat so much , and put out a nice big pan of refreshing water laced with anti freeze ..For some reason he'll eventually stop coming around

I know of ppl who have had great success with a product called 'Scat Mat' on their pets at home. If the critter likes the same spot on your boat , he's gonna get rude awakening when he lands on one of these things. Google pulls up tons of info.

Forget the honey badger, get the dude narrating. He will drive anyone and anything away just so they don't have to listen to him.

It's part of boating.I know it sucks, but it is what it is. My boat is apparently in the flight path of an Osprey and mom osprey wants to always teach her young all the ins and outs of being an osprey right above my boat. If I didn't know any better, I would swear a rotweiler was crapping on my boat, and it gets real nice and hard when it bakes in the sun. But like I said, it is what it is. They were here long before we were. We're actually the one's annoying them
