Delaminated teak plywood

Our new to us MY has a curved piece of interior it teak plywood that has delaminated slightly. Cause is probably the stress on the outer plywood skin created by the curve and perhaps from moisture/heat from the salon AC located behind it. It is not unsightly or real rough but its there. The cracks are about 1/4 inch apart and run the vertical lenght of the piece. I am hesitant to sand and restain and varnish since I know I will never duplicate the colour or finish. Is there any way of softening this outer lamination and regluing it while preserving the original look? I have a pic that I tried to include but the system says the file is too big.

It would really help if you posted a photo. You should resize the photo so it is under the size limit for the board or post it to flickr.com, shutterfly, or one of the other photo websites and then post a link to it.

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.

You're right, a pic would really help. I will wait until I am on board later this month. I can resize the camera and take a pic that better shows the damage. The pic I have right now was taken last Aug when we were shopping. The curved piece is part of a general interior photo and will not help much. I'll repost later. Thanks for the relpy sailingdog.

Thanks jones2r. It's 10:58 am here. Oh, what the hell. I just poured myself a double dark and dirty (Pusser's navy rum and coke). Just hate to see a man drink alone.
