outboard dinghy throttle cable lube

What do people recommend to prolong the life of a dinghy throttle cable?

If lube, with what? I don't want to trap dirt in there.

The main problem seems to be the salt air, and probably some water, gets on the cable and it rusts right at the bend between the throttle arm and the cable's jacket.

I've done this on motorcycle cables for years.

Now that is really nice!

How large a cable can it be used on? A standard Teleflex shift or throttle cable?
