Davey and company's oakum is the best navy quality oakum available.
Oakum, hemp fiber steeped in Stockholm tar, is the authentic caulking material that swells and expands to pack the joints and gaps of wooden boats. Choose oakum when you need to fill large gaps in planking, especially below the waterline.
You'll find all the tools and supplies necessary for your calking job in our section devoted to caulking tools. We stock mallets, irons, and different types of cotton for other seam filling duties.
