Good day all. 1954 CC Sportsman with a KL Hercules engine. What type grease should be used in the water pump cup?

Lubriplate no.115 water pump grease. Calcium based lubricant.
Boats are to be made of wood, otherwise, God would have grown fiberglass trees.

Per another suggestion I am using Quicksilver 2-4-C Marine Lubricant with PTFE has anyone had any issues with that grease? I've also seen Classic Boat Connection selling Castrol Pyroplex Gold but my research tells me that stuff isnt made any more.
