Halmatic 28 rail timber

Anyone know why Halmatic (or maybe it is not original??) used through-bolted timber rails that are fitted between the outer tube flange and the sides of the hull?
To remove this rail the outer deck flange has to be cut off.
No problem in this case because the whole deck is coming off, but why not have the tube clamped against the glass hull?
Where the timber had not rotted out the bolts had compressed it which made the ally rail look uneven and tired!

Has anyone out there re-decked a Halmatic with glass panels rather than ply?

I'm in the Virgin Islands renovating a 28 that recently came from St.Martin.
