The HDPE or PTFE sheets sound just the ticket, and I've just found a supplier not many miles from me, thanks :-)

sent a mail to direct plastics asking for cost affective solution will pass on when they reply.
but for info HDPE 2000 x 500 x 5 =£27.12 + plus post & cutting £10
10 mm = £54.24
40 mm = £300.
based on 3 pieces 2 bunks 1 keel 150 wide 5 mm thick about the least you can have to screw down gluing can be tricky with some materials they point out.

cheers

Cutting is easy. HDPE works like soft plywood (though you end up with plastic shavings everywhere.) Can be sawn, routed, whatever, easier than most woods.

I've just sprayed the bunks (covered in carpet) with Holt Pro Lube Spray, which I had lying around.
The boat slid like an ice cube in a KY jelly factory
Problem solved

How will that affect the boat fabric if future repairers needed (glue adhesion)

No idea, but I would imagine it would prevent most things sticking to it, including glue and patches.
But, thats not a problem, at the moment.
