Caulking A Strip Planked Boat
by John Chupka
(Troy, NY )
I have a 1973 40 foot wooden trawler, “Karena”.
She is wood strip mahogany planks for Hull- about 11/2 inches wide.
I want to fill in some seems as it takes at least 5 days to swell.
Some people say tar, others say let it be and let it swell, others use wax.
Any ideas on the tar?
