Bristol Sussex caulking cotton for traditional caulking of boats. For larger seams. Approximately 210 Feet per Pound. Single combined 1 grade.
For varied planking, also keep some Oakum on hand for wide gaps, and Caulk Wicking for tight gaps.
Typically, on boat seams, caulking is next covered by a marine paint. Once dry, the remaining space is filled with seam compound (one for above waterline, another for below) before applying final topcoat.

Used it to restore the seams in a traditional Great South Bay Gil Smith cat boat. It worked perfectly.

There are good youtube videos on how to use the cotton, especially Louis Sauzedde's Tips From A Shipwright. The process is straightforward and there are different tools you can substitute like a rubber mallet, putty knife or pizza cutter.
