New Video! "Calking: ˈkȯr-kiŋ or ˈkȯ-kiŋ?"

Calking: To make (a boat) watertight by packing seams with a waterproof material, such as oakum, cotton or pitch.

This video is about the different ways to pronounce "Calking." It features the shipwrights and calkers who worked on Adventuress' port-side during Phase 1 of her Centennial Restoration Project.
