thanks for the tips! What I mean by that is there are holes that exist in the teak rail and the deck rail, such as the holes the chainplates extrude from:

my worry is that if I went with the method of spreading the caulking around the entire underside of the cap rail, the stuff would ooze into these holes making a clean up mess. The holes are wide open as all hardware (chainplates included) is removed from the rails and the deck.
