I found the reference, and edited my above post.
... and from a few posts later in the same thread;
... and finally from Allen's website (
I started using Super Lube at the recommendation of the local boat yard to lube my masthead sheave. When I got my Andersen Winches, the grease in the winch looked the same. In talking to Andersen, I find it is the same. Comparing the properties of the grease with other greases, I find it is a truly high quality grease with little aversion to salt water. It also doesn't get your hands dirty :-)
Super Lube can be ordered at your local ACE hardware store for about $5.00 using ACE #08235310305

I have Andersen winches on my boat (upgraded from 26 year old Barlows). I like that the Andersens are ALL Stainless Steel (no plastic, no plated bronze), and believe that the "Power Rib" is more than just marketing BS.
