    Soap and water. Sometimes just water.

      I have tried that, but see trails. I don't think that is enough.

      I tried magic eraser and now I have dull spots all over the boat and I can't wax them out.

        I would not use magic eraser on gelcoat. The applicator sponge is micro abrasive, dull spots need to be buffed out now.

          I used some fine grit sandpaper and then polished, but there is brown like coming through.

            This stuff works pretty well on spider poop. I think it has a little acid in it. Spray it on, let it sit a few minutes and rinse off. West Marine has it.

              we have flocks of the bloody sea pigeons all over our dock when storm comes in.. they eat the mussels and puke shells and crap all over everyones boat.. use plain soap and water.. SPRAY the poop first.. if you try and scrub it, the shells and sand they eat will scratch the fiberglass and cause more harm then good.. we used Pinesol.. cleans well and the boat is piney fresh..lol

                Im not sure what went wrong, I think taking sandpaper to a poo stain is a bit much. Others can help you on issues regarding gellcoat repair.However I use this stuff to remove bird and spider poo. Basically just spray boat with it, and then hose off. This stuff dissolves poo and safe on upholstery and canvas. It removes a week old baked on presents that gulls leave on my deck with ease.

                    I found very good solution to prevent seagull poop on top of my boat:

                    http://www.gullsweep.com/StandardGullsweep.html

                    This is rotating with very minimum wind. In parctice it spins all the time making impossible for birds to land. No more poop-issue since I installed one.

                    Recommend !

                      Try snakes.

                      On my boat I put rubber snakes on the horizontal surfaces to help persuade the bird brains to go elsewhere.

                          For cleaning gull poop on fiberglass I use Starbrite Non-Skid Deck cleaner. Don't exactly know the chemistry of why it works since it is just a super chelating agent, but it does. Stain will not disappear immediately but after an hour or so the deck is white as can be. It also whitens the plastic hatch cover frames that get kinda dingy and yellow after awhile. Just brush it on with deck brush, leave sit a minute, rinse off and everything is brite white again.

                            Use a surface grinder to get the brown stains out. Just keep grinding until they're gone.

                              If stains persist after washing with soap and water, try a hull cleaner containing oxalic acid. Wipe it on, allow to sit and rinse off. You will need to re-wax afterwards. Use caution when handling e.g. rubber gloves, eye protection etc.
