Re: Substitute for furlex grease?

Different furling systems require different lubricant types, or none. I'm not aware of any that use dry lubricant but could be. To not service a furling system per the manufacturer's instructions is expensive folly. several regards...

I ran out of the supply that came with the boat, and need to do some overdue maintenance. Having a hard time putting my hands on the OEM FURLEX grease. Asked at my local chandler (Hamilton Marine), and they were unable to source some. There has to be a suitable substitute out there! Any insight appreciated.
