Re: Impeller Replacement Lubricant?

I have always carried and used Sil-glide, but I like the idea of a multi purpose lubricant like KY. I try to have everything on the boat multi-useful.

The basis of accomplishment is in never quitting

lanolin grease. 101 uses and you could probably eat it too if you have to

I can think of much better uses for the KY, just use plain old washing up liquid, works every time.
