Deck Delamination

I came across a 35' sailboat in my search for a liveaboard this past year that was first listed at $28k. In the past year the boat has sat seemingly unused and still for sale, the owner seemingly has dropped the price down to $18k. The boat seems to have a lot of other good things going for it, but the delamination is across 50-70% of the deck. I know that is a major repair, at what point is buying a boat like that worth it? Or is the structural integrity so compromised that it will never be worth it no matter how much the price is dropped?
