Had same problem we removed the original rivets in the rail and used new Stanley marine closed end rivets. Put a little trailer caulking on the top edge of rail and ends then put it back on to seal the edges. Also put a thin line of Lexel caulking across the top edge after install. Lexel is clear as glass and did not want it to show. Unlike silicone which will not stick to silicone, Lexel will stick to its self and even works on wet objects. We do always use the trailer product first; but in most cases it is raining and then Lexel; as it will work on wet items so it is in our emergency kit.
Warning Lexel sticks to everything dry or wet and is very strong never use on lenses of lights
or over work it as you will have a mess.
If you do not want any rail then fan out holes a little use marine epoxy with a little bit of glass fiber to fill holes and then gelcoat later over top to make the holes disappear. This would be better than caulking holes and be permanent fix.
