Scott...with the mention of "brown stuff" I am now concerned that you have a plywood/balsa deck core water intrusion situation. I would absolutely encourage you to cut through the liner and get at the underside of that deck so you can remove the track and make sure you don't have any deck integrity issues. You can always put a teak wood trim "patch" on the inside liner to make things look good again and give you easy and permanent access to the track. If you do have some water incursion tht is LIMITED in size...small holes can be drilled in the deck and epoxy injected to stabilize the situation.
