The work involved is time-consuming, but not rocket science... If you really love the boat, and have the time and space, I would say do the rebuild of the deck yourself. It will teach you alot about boat repair and maintenance, which is never a bad thing, and it will cost quite a bit less.
Also, while you're at it, you could remove the deck fittings yourself and re-pot all of the holes through the deck with epoxy, then paint the deck and you wouldn't have to worry as much about delamination recurring.

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.
