Thanks,
Hi,

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.

Interesting thread. I would be hard pressed to know who to put first in the Boaters' Hall of Fame -- the person who invented WD-40, the person who invented hose clamps, or the person who invented beer. Tough call.
