You just had to mention the smell of old boat shops! Growing up in the fifties I spent a lot of time playing in my families marine store. I loved the smell. It was some time before I realized that the smell was from the pine tar in the oakum we sold. I've often thought of putting oakum in the air conditioner ducts of our current store. We sold bags of red lead powder that I think you mixed with linseed oil to use as a primer.
