How to secure teak trim??

I've been working on my 1970 Coronado 27 recently with a new topside paint job and new bottom paint so I also decided to replaces the modly, split teak trim. My question is, as I've found reasonable priced teak and the tools and location necessary to finish it (read grandpa's garage), how do I secure it to the deck? It is just trim that runs the side of the companion way hatch and holds it in place and along the side of the companion way holding the slats in place. I was planning on using counter-sunk flat head stainless screws with little plugs to cover the heads. Should I also use some sort of caulking or sealant between the deck and the teak? It is newly painted with Interlux Brightside one-part. Thanks.
