Hard to Open Sliding Hatch

Thanks for all the suggestions. Turning over the same ones is not an option since they are cracked all the way through and once the screws are removed will be several pieces. Polyurethane sounds like the best and cheapest short term solution. Someone at the local boatyard suggested brass strips. More expensive but will last. I''m just a bit worried about wear of the fiberglass hatch flange riding on brass.

Does anyone know where polyurethane stock can be purchased ?
