That's a tricky question! Believe a shipwright would want to examine the deck in person :- To determine the extent of the 'delamination'. To establish the cause. If it is found that the core (plywood or some other wood has rotted and swollen - which in turn has delaminated other material, then you may be looking at a significant amount of work, not only to remove the deck but also internally it may be necessary to remove and replace headlining.

If the boat is some 30 years old - it may be an idea to instruct a surveyor to provide a condition and valuation survey, giving a separate appraisal of the delamination problem. In the end the survey cost, could save a lot of money.
