Might as well throw in my choice - McLube Sailkote - I use it on the 
Sail track on my sailboat....

"It dries quickly to a hard, smooth, ultra-slick, hydrophobic dry 
coating that bonds tenaciously to almost any surface. And because 
Sailkote is a dry lubricant, it will not attract dirt or contaminants 
and will not transfer to other surfaces, or you.

Sailkote is typically *five times* as effective, and lasts much longer 
than, wax, oil or Teflon® based lubricants."

If you can believe them. However it does work on the boat quite well.
