If you are talking about the traditional 'tapered cone' style of seacocks, a thick grease like Sparton Marine Seacock Grease or Blakes Seacock Grease is supposed to be the best. I discovered it when I found Servicing Tapered Cone Seacocks at Compass Marine
. I rebuilt three of my own and these instructions worked perfectly.
For bronze or stainless steel ball valves, and just about anything else, I use CorrosionX
which I have been using for years on anything that flies or floats.
