Wax And Grease
Hello everyone
Does anyone recommend a marine wax that can be applied in temperatures say in the 40ís and roller furling grease?

Not all roller furling units require grease. I would recommend you check your unit's manual to be sure it requires grease. If it does, I'd recommend using DuPont Teflon Bearing Grease or DuPont Krytox.

As for waxing.... the best instructions I've seen on the subject are Maine Sail's... and you can read them HERE.
