Rob, I use the 101 and also found the Merc. spline grease (blue) works well too!

From the Merc. webiste;
How can I prevent the propeller from sticking onto the shaft?
We recommend a liberal coat of one of the following Mercury Precision or Quicksilver Marine Lubricants on the propeller shaft: Special Lubricant 101, 2-4-C Marine Lubricant with Teflon, or Anti-Corrosion Grease. These lubricants are available from any authorized Mercury Marine dealer.

So they sugest all 3, but one has to be better?
