Bud, I have cleaned, used emory cloth on until shiney, applied metal primer, and painted the two aluminum plates that divide the three sets of sheeves at the masthead on my W28. (One each fore and aft sheeve being a set.) They had never been painted before.

I am getting ready to clean the sheeves and clevis pins through them. What is best to lubricate the sheeves? Sailkote? Something like Permatex Anti-Seize Lubricant (which is waterproof)? Something else?

I did not find any reference in the Service Manual or any prior message board thread, though I could have missed something either place.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
