Re: Leaks on 1984 Sea Sprite 30
Hi there, cool boat!
For the stains and delam you could get a syringe and squirt some waterproof wood glue behind. Then take a piece of wood thin enough to bend and wedge it across to something solid with the idea being that the wood(spring clamp) will put pressure on the veneer. Use something flexible to spread out the pressure.
For the staining you can sand a little, very little, that veneer is thin. I've used a brass brush to get into the grain and it helped. There are some products that will remove stains from wood but I just use diluted bleach. Test some spots out to see if it will blend. You will always have a stain there but you will be able to make it look better.

I try to get a handle on the tip but I usually get the shaft. (Explaining a ski pole)
