It can be had some way or another. The guy building the Sea Dreamer on youtube is using it. George Buehler recommended it up till his last days.

Cuprinol , worked great.

Today you need to look in farm catalogues for fence post dip, still copper napthate.

Some is sold as concentrates , add diesel or kerosene to create the solution.

EZ-Slide is what was recommended.

I think I should amend my comment about using graphite paints anywhere onboard a boat. I read an article about graphite shaft packing. I wish I would have bookmarked it. The article stated that graphite will cause galvanic corrosion on any metal it contacts in the presence of saltwater.
