Deck Hand Rails

I have a C&C Redwing 30 that I've recently purchased. The deck hand rails have been removed at some point and were not with the boat when I bought it. The cabin handrails were also removed, however I do have them. I am guessing they were removed to avoid some wet leakage issues, since all the holes have been permanently sealed.

My questions:

- how difficult would it be to replace the deck handrails with none custom (store bought) teak rails? I expect the original rails were curved to follow the cabin roof line.

- do the deck rails screw into the cabin rails?

- if I rebed them, is leaking going to be an on-going issue?
