I don't think lithium grease holds up well in water, you need a water proof grease and even then you need to clean and regressed it constantly.

bigstang,
the problem is not if its water resistant, the problem is the speed and friction created by the rotating flex shaft causes the grease to liquefy and not providing the protection needed.
get your self some marine grease or any other good brand that is tacky, and high temp.
