Tar

Steffy: A dark, sticky substance used in caulking seams or spread over the inner or outer surfaces of hulls as waterproofing and protection against some forms of marine life. Pitches were variously derived from the resins of certain ever green trees; from bitumens, such as mineral pitches; or from the distillation of coal tar, wood tar, etc.
