Castrol SX2 which is a waterproof grease designed for open gears on deck machinery, comes in 400g cartridges.

Just make sure you match the soap bases if you use different grease brands. Lithium is the most popular, but some manufacturers use Aluminum Complex, as it tends to be a bit more water resistant. Those two in particular don't play nice together.
