Well, you weren't specific as to how the LCD 'died', (besides the delamination). I've never seen a LCD display just 'die' completely, in the sense of Tuesday it works and Wednesday it doesn't.
From doing some occasional work with marine
electronics dealers, I know that most of them have a junk-pile of dead units (eg lightning
strikes) or trade-ins from which parts
can be salvaged. If you can find such a dealer with your model in his pile, that could be a solution.
Otherwise, order a new display from Furuno. Want the address?
