I use Prather cable grease on my outrigger. I haven't had a problem with it. Its made for lubing drive shafts.

Mr Simpson,
Email me with an address, I happen to have that exact grease im not using, and I will send it along if you want. I had one of those Shockwaves made by ProBoat. Its the almost full container of the previous post, Prather.

Default boat shaft grease

Go to your local Wal Mart and get you some waterproof wheel bearing grease in a tube, thats what I use on all my prop shafts. Its a Bright "Baby Blue" color and believe me it works, I use it on the wheel bearings on all of my boat trailers, and when I repack the wheel bearings on my vehicles. In the last 10 years Ive been using this stuff, Ive yet to have a bearing failure. If you cant find it at Wal Mart try a boating center or dealer.
