Companionway Hatch Rails

I recently purchased my first yacht and need to do a few minor jobs to get it into the water. One of which is installing the sliding hatch (plexiglass). I know most people use wooden rails to support the hatch, but i have noticed that some use a plasic rail system. I am in clined to go for the plastic one, but can find it anywhere. Can someone please give me some advice on what is best and where to get hold of the plastic ones.

Thanks in advanced,

Pj
