I like the router suggestion, but I used a jigsaw for mine. I didn't have any pull-saws so I just left a little edge (1/8" or so) that I sanded and planed down afterward. I got a slightly less than smooth finish on my rail, but I'm satisfied with it. It's not furniture for me, it's a toy, so it doesn't have to be perfect. I figured any gouges could be repaired pretty easily.
Whatever you're comfortable with will work. I like the speed of the power tools, especially since I took over a year to finish (actually it's still not finished 5 years later) my boat.
