jeanneau deck problem

Im thinking of purchasing a 1985 jeanneau 45 sunkiss Ive had a survey done and the results where good untill the surveror found that the deck had a lot of moisture from the chain locker back to the cockpit.I found out that the yacht had previousley had a teak deck which had been removed and where the screws had been hadnt been repaired properly.the suveyor suggested that the core betwen the deck and the inner skin,which I think is bolsa has to be removed ,replaced and then a new deck applied.
What I would like to know is ,has any body had a similar problem and what is the best cure,and will this affect the strength of the yacht or should I just walk away?
thanks for any input steve
