On my Pilot 30, when I first acquired it last year, the door (sliding companionway door) was a bit recalcitrant as you described. I washed the door sliders with a pressure washer and was rewarded with lots of vegetation rolling out the other side. That, plus a little spray graphite, improved operation greatly. A hose with nozzle should do the trick as well. Spray into the track parallel to the direction of operation. You might try just the graphite first if your boat has not been moored near trees.
