Default Keeping otters out of boathouse

We have struggled with unwanted otter "presents" in our boathouse for quite some time. It can get very frustrating: the smell, having to scrape the stuff off the boathouse floor.

The previous owner was so frustrated he sat in a hide all night with a gun. No comment on whether that was a good idea, but at least the otters figured it out and no shots were fired.

We tried leaving a boom box running all the time. This worked for several weeks but they figured it out and went back to their old habits.

We've now installed a PestZilla animal repellant, which is an alarm and strobe light attached to a motion sensor. Surprisingly for such a simple solution, it has totally cured our problem.

But knowing these animals to be loath to give up, does anyone have any suggestions for a more robust solution?

Thank you!
