I see Tef Gel is an often suggested grease/lubricant for stainless steel and titanium bolts on a foil. I also know I could get a big tub of Tea Gel at Steveston Marine.

What lubrication for bolts are you using, and is there a local store, in the GVRD, to purchase it ?

I much prefer Lanocote. Unlike teflon it's not toxic and it's less sticky.

My Slingshot Phantasm came with Prolan. I emailed and ordered more when I ran out. It arrived in 2 or 3 days. They are in Whistler.
