Lots of shelducks around the waters where I keep my boat, unfortunately they like to roost on my dingy and use it to pass the contents of their bowels. What is the most suitable cleaner to remove shelduck cr*p from the PVC tubing of my inflatable as it is badly stained. Thought about acetone but don’t know if this will do more harm that good.

As VicS says, definitely not acetone except as a last resort, small amounts on a rag but it will remove PVC quite rapidly. We use Cream Cleaner on our dinghy, doesn't get to the extremes you describe but it copes well with smaller doses of excreta.
