The Deck-Guard Ultrasonic Bird Repeller offers a simple, hassle-free solution for keeping birds off your boat while she sits on the mooring and awaits your return. The Deck-Guard system uses ultrasonic sound waves (that aren’t audible to most humans—think dog whistle, but for birds) to annoy the heck out of winged would-be deck defecators. The units are activated using motion sensors (they have a 15-foot vertical range and a 30-foot horizontal range), so they are only in use when they need to be. They are powered with a rechargeable battery pack with solar panels as well for added longevity.
The idea of combining volume and performance is about as old as boatbuilding itself. But sometimes the execution just brings the mix to a precise level that will stop you in your tracks. Check out the 26-knot Sunseeker 95, and see how she came about.
