For off shore fishing vessels in Maine, nothing beats Fluid Film. The only spray on product that keeps the hydraulic steering rams clean and rust free in the worst environments seldom looked at for months at a time. It also is very good for sealing battery terminals, plug and socket connectors, locks, and wait until you try it on gun barrels - no more acid residue from finger prints. I learned decades ago not to use WD-40 to stop rust and for sure never get it near electronics or power controls.
