Oakum is natural hemp that has been impregnated with Stockholm Tar (also known as pine tar as it is extracted from the sap of pine trees). Oakum is used for the packing (or caulking) between hull planks and decking timbers on wooden boats. A caulking mallet and special caulking irons are used to tap the oakum into the seams.
This particular oakum caulking is imported from Davey & Co in the United Kingdom and has proved popular with professionals maintaining vessels in Australia. Its quality and high-durability makes this oakum ideal for caulking below the waterline.
