Toe Rail Replacement

Has anyone replaced the toe rail on thier boat? I am considering this for the fall but trying to get some background before investing money and time. The boat is a 1979 Sabre MKI 34. It is a teak toe rail. I have the spec from sabre and can have a local shop mill the rail and generate the plugs. The other option would be to replace with an aluminum rail.

The difficult part is getting to some of the existing bolts. The concern is with the seam where the deck and hull join it appears to be glassed/epoxied but not certain. Any thoughts from those who have taken on a similar project would be appreciated.
