..... Until a couple years from now when possibly some of it detaches itself, breaks, still has enough sticky on it to re-attach itself to a slug or sail or blocks the track .... whatever..... etc...... No Thanks. Yes - worst case scenario - but that's what we plan for.
I'll stick to McLube Sailkote DRY Lube which makes my main drop like a stone and raise without a winch. That stuff is so slippery the over-spray when I did my main slugs (and the slot as far as I could get by standing on my boom) this spring that my fingers were so slippery I could barely hang on to the last few slugs to spray it on
