One of my companionway hatchboards has a horizontal seam in the middle between two of the boards that are made into one board. Water leaks in when it rains. I wonder, I won won won won wonder what I could could use to seal that seam?

right now I'm thinking clear shoe goo pressed in from the outside and sand it down.

Or maybe Pine Tar from the baseball sports store?

Maybe lay the board down flat then fill the seam with epoxy. You may have to tape the seam on the inside to keep the epoxy from running through until it sets up. Then sand it smooth. By the way Ray you have this posted in the swap meet forum.
