I have seen documentaries where rope caulks were identifiable after over
1,000 years. So much that they knew the exact fiber used. IIRC, it is
stuffed in there with a tar mixture and tapped into place with a flat shim
of wood and a hammer. The extra goop may help with sealing and preserving
whatever it comes in contact with. Should be cheap, too. Keep us posted.
