The owner of the boat next door voted for WD-40.


WD-40 is not a lubricant. Its carrier will evaporate, leaving a sticky goo behind.

I have the identical pole end as you. I also worked with one for many years racing a Heritage One-Ton. Never applied anything to any part of it. Make sure the parts are clean & polished smooth - that's all. Bicycle guys will sell you a dry chain lube designed to prevent the attraction of dirt (by oil). Try this if you need something. I would use no 'wet' lubricants.

Stop it!

Boeshield T-9 is indeed awesome.

A buddy I used to race with used dry graphite powder, it's very good as well.
