Turns out it's just copper grease...
Engine is 12 years old and for less than 2k more, you can buy a new one with a 5 year warranty , unrealistic sellers :-(

Copper grease is no good in a marine environment

Ended up doing exactly that, sold both private and now the proud owner of a 2007 mariner 40hp efi , came of a little used river boat ... :-)
