Delam under cabin sole - repair

My Sabre 28 has a bit of delamination near the bottom of the compression post beneath the cabin sole -- not a structural issue, the surveyor assures me, but it does cause the bilge cover to 'wobble' in that area.

Any suggestions on how to best repair without cutting into the cabin sole? The teak and holly of the sole, itself, looks good and is dry -- it's just this support piece of plywood, underneath.

A few years ago, Ed Gawarecki posted the following regarding a Sabre 30:

"Nice sailing boat, the only area of particular note to check would be
the support piece under the cabin sole below the compression post that
supports the mast. There have been problems with delamination of this
part. If delaminated, repairs would need to be done, but not that big
of a deal."

Sounds like what I'm dealing with -- and I'd love to know how to make this 'not that big of a deal!'
