I have done an easy fix

1. install a zerk fitting in the bearing housing
    This is a Grease fitting

2. lite grease with ag green poly grease  thru John Deere
this is an all temperature grease  White grease for marine applications is 

3. cover the thrust bearing with a CV boot from an old
    VW bug.  Attach at mast and over CV with SS band
    clamps.  This prevents dirt and dust into the bearing
    and keeps water away from the bearing
