Ive got 2 flight decks, a popsicle 8.75 with Indy 159s and a 9.125 pool shape with Indy 169s. Both have Bones SPF wheels, and the heft of the larger board makes it much easier for me to ram it into stuff, whereas i feel less confident on the lighter/smaller board.

I heard in sacto, guys would use wood screws to hold in rails all the way through the deck, then hammer off the pointy end.....

Back in the day we used "sex bolts" or T-Nuts.

Fairly common in general.

Others I know put the longer screws through the deck before they grip it and angle grind to tops off for a nice clean but well locked in.

Lock bolts or sex bolts are much harder to get and most people don't want a million things on the top of their boards.

I have seen some people put down double sided tape to lock the rails in place too, then screw them in.

Everyone can have their own deal with rails.

I prefer boards without rails, but I did use them when I was a kid and I can see the uses for them nowdays too.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.
