Yesterday I caulked new planks on Pickpocket, a Block Island Cowhorn. Her mooring anchor stood up and the shank gouged seven bottom planks, which I replaced earlier in the job. Pics of that work to come….
The boat is caulked traditionally with cotton. Below is a short video that shows the caulking in progress. Normally, I wouldn’t tape the seams but it didn’t take much time and it will create a clean line for the seam compound.
