... is there specific grease I can buy, use that waterproof blue grease?..... Red
We have a Furlex and lube it with the waterproof grease. Lubriplate makes a good one that is easily ordered on-line or found in some auto parts stores. auto-marine-grease.html
You will need to disassemble the upper portion to get at the bearing race - but that is easily done. The manufacturer recommends every other year for the lower race.
Give it a good hosing once in a while as well to keep the salt from forming and wipe that damn grin off your face.
