sailingdog Chances are very likely that the monkey**** will score the shaft far more quickly than using GFO or a proper flax packing material.

Seal packing material.

My old man was telling me about a seal packing material he used to use in the boat yards that they called "Monkey ****", supposedly has a play-dough like consistency, is capable of keeping a water tight seal, and is later removable without too much hastle. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find this material and what it's formally called, I've been searching and found some references to it in nautical books, but I've been able to locate an actual product.
