These are the only products i use on my foil hardware.

Never seize and way better than lanolin tefgel. Extreme conditions that have been used in marine environments for decades. Goes on clean and stays clean.

my personal favorite.

Here's you go mofo's ... d/p/NA1026

This is the stuff i used to use in the aircraft industry when using a dissimilar metals. Ie steel of SS fastener through an alloy body part. We used to call it canary shit and its sole purpose is to prevent dissimilar metal reaction.

That said, Do i use it on my foil. Nope. I just grabbed some marine grease i had lurking. As i dont pull my foil down i also silicone sealed the bolt holes as well as putting a swathe of grease on the threads. Essentially you need to remove the ingress of electrolyte solution (seawater in this case). Do that and you will dramatically slow or stop the corrosion process.

I also use Duralac. Easily available at any good chandlery, one tube will last a lifetime for your and all your friends foils. It is slightly tacky and dries hard so has a Loctite effect on the thread. Way, way cheaper than Tefgel.
