Depending where you are might be a good alternative to Tefgel?

I'm a Tefgel fan having used it for many years on my Aluminum boat. As an alternative to TefGel, I would also consider https://www.westmarine.com/buy/forespar ... or--129975

How about tar, would it work as well? https://www.maston.fi/en/front-page/pro ... -tar-400ml
It is used to prevent bolts to stuck.
I have used it in my foil threads, but only a couple of months, so I can't tell yet did it work well or not :)

Been using Jet-Lube Marine Grade, it works great.
