Vaseline on through hulls maybe?

I have some sticky Marlon through hulls and, being relatively broke by nature, was wondering if i could use all the Vaseline I've accumulated over the past 4 years of being single to lubricate them when i pull em all out in my refit. Is it possible, or will i have to break the bank AGAIN (new bilge pumps are a bitc*)

Re: Vaseline on through hulls maybe?

You should be using marelube on each of the seacocks when you haul out. I use an acid brush to apply to the marelube to the closed seacock then work it open/closed a few times then apply some more and repeat.
