cleaner on it. I let it soak for 10 or 20 minutes, then come out and spray/brush some more. Letting it soak is key, unless you think cleaning
off bird droppings is fun aerobic exercize.
Repeat as necessary... or until you don't feel like doing it any more. "Cleaner than it was" is considered progress on our boat.
I've never seen it as bad as you describe, though.
