|Gullsweeps - A Fine Bird Deterrent|
|Wednesday, 23 February 2011|
A few members have been enquiring about Gullsweeps, and for those not so familiar with the concept - here is some information on them and they are available by mail order from Outboard Services and Marine Ltd.
Gullsweep is from the United States and keeps gulls off your boat by continually sweeping the area where they usually stand. Even in the slightest breeze, the Gullsweep rotates over a six foot diameter and creates an intimidating environment for birds because they don't like moving objects.
Gullsweep has a new and improved design – not only is the new design stronger but it is also more effective in warding off gulls. The unique vanes now allow them to be lifted and stored over the support rods. Both rods fold and vanes are flat to each other, thus eliminating hinge breakage. Gullsweep VaneNew vanes are directly interchangeable with the older design. All replacement parts are interchangeable with older Gullsweep models. When not in use it folds for convenient storage. The new, tougher Gullsweep is 10 X stronger than earlier models. Gullsweep is a rugged, dependable performer.
