Another place that the deck commonly delaminates is around the chainplates. I would recommend checking the area around the chainplates fairly thouroughly.

Also, if the mast is deck-stepped, then look in the cabin, and check to see if the cabin roof is sagging or not. If it is, regardless of whether there is a compression post, you will need some work. In some cases, the compression post isn't properly aligned with the mast foot, so the mast foot transfers loads to the cabin roof and causes a sag.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
