Toe rail installation

I have a 1960 Seafarer Tripp-30, full fiberglass hull, that I was going to reinstall the jib tracks on, which since the time of purchase have not been installed. After speaking with the previous owner he showed me an old picture of the original track location and I realized I now have another project to do. Installing a toe rail.

So my original thought was to through-bolt the jib track into the deck but since it's supposed to be attached to the toerail, and the toerail wasn't through-bolted (I'm assuming), and any type of bolt would just go downward into the hull, now I have to take a step back and figure out the best way to attach the toerail to the deck.

So, do I use screws to attach the toerail? If so how deep should they be set? Should I just epoxy the wooden toerails to the deck? Or should I bed it with some caulking and screws?

Any other tips would be appreciated since I'm still fairly new to all of this. Thanks!
