My cap rails are located on top of the bulwarks. However, my canvas covers are held in place by snaps. That's the way to go regardless of whether your bright work is flush with the hull or not.

I wouldn't add anything to my varnish except more varnish about every six months. That's part of owning a boat with exposed wood! ...just my opinion, of course. You could always paint your cap rails.
