I haven't installed handrails, but have some experience with carpentry. It sounds like you are trying to attach a flat surface to a curved surface. I'd start by using a drum sanding attachment on the bottom of the handrail to make the surface concave. Then reattach the handrail to see how close a fit it is. If you find that the middle screws draw the handrail tight, but the end ones are floating in air, make the middle ones shorter by the amount of space that the ends have from the deck. Once you have a reasonable fit, make sure you bed the rail with compound to keep the water out of the cabintop.
