Railbands. Looking at the "simple rail dims chart", it displays one single value for rail mark. Do I have to use the same rail mark on all the board length or shall I multiply by dimension as far as I go further or backward on the board?

Your nose and tail rail marks can vary by the nose and tail depending on the type of board you are shaping. In a high performance shape you will have a rail mark at the nose that is 1/2" and the center and tail marks at 1" to account for the foil of the board as shown here 

Each board can be a little different so don't be afraid to adjust the numbers slightly to account for the rail thickness you desire.
