Companionway sliding hatch

I am trying to remove the sliding hatch on my V800.  See photos.  Can someone advise?  I am unable to see how to do it and the garage appears to be permanent.

Murray - if it is like the Frances, the garage is screwed onto wooden battens (probably rotten!).   From memory you can then slide the hatch forward.

Thought an update helpful.  The garage had to be removed and the brass slider strips had to be lifted at the cockpit end - two screws each - in order to remove the hatch as the hatch has stoppers to prevent it sliding too far under the garage.  The wood battens were in good condition, teak I think and I will give them a couple of oil soaks.
