    Stockholm Tar 5 Kg tub

    Posted by Jouko Nykänen on 2nd Jul 2019

    This product is getting hard to find. Used widely for over 500 years on the hulls of wooden ships, it now seems to be restricted to vet stores for treating horses' hooves. I was delighted to find that Classic Boat Supplies has it in a useful 5 litre tub. It's a great way of preserving timber surfaces and it has a nice aroma. My childhood was spent in the Nordics and Stockholm tar was used for a great many things, from boats and tool handles to window frames and roof shingles. If you have a wooden boat, this is the stuff to use.
