See your local banker, then see your local boat yard.
You have a reasonably expensive boat...any significant repairs to your deck, as this problem may call for, will be very obvious if not done in a professional manner and thoroughly. If you have a significant area of the deck redone, you are likely faced with refinishing the entire deck if you don't want the patch to be obvious. The patched deck could reduce the value of your boat as much as 50%, the refinishing of the deck may cost in the area of $10K (ignoring the cost of the core repair itself), so that becomes the better of two bad choices. Good luck.
