What to put between planks?

I have a 1964 custom ski boat . I looking for what to use between the planks on the bottom of the boat .Some gaps seem to look as if there is some chaulk or compound missing.

I agree with John. Unfortunately it is really hard to find. I think they quit making it and what is on shelves is all that is out there.

Yes!

Davis Slick Seam. Like drrot said it has been discontinued, but you may be able to find some out there. If not send me a PM.

Interlux seam compound is the next best thing. IMHO.
