Rain damage...

Don't see any way out except to paint over it.

First, find and fix the leak. Secondly, a good joinery guy can fix that up good as new. Lastly, don't blame the rain.

Repairing water stained teak is tough and maybe a boat carpenter is the best solution. You/he will have to sand it down, bleach out the black mold and then revarnish. As noted above, it can be done, but takes some skill.

And when you get good at doing it, you can come and repair a couple of places on my boat...

I am exploring the possibility of placing new teak veneer on top. Then refinishing is easy.

I had luckily a small spot that was almost that bad. It cleaned up with a little oxalic acid and teak oil. My teak is Dalyís teak oil not varnish. Otherwise Iíd just pull the teak plywood and replace. If you can find matching veneer, go with it.

I asked a friend who is a shipwright. Small, out of the way areas, he’ll try to blend them in but it’s still pretty obvious if you know where to look. Large areas can get expensive and most boat owners live with it. He also has covered water damaged areas with Formica. A better finish than paint and it can lighten up a wall.

It's not that tough, but takes some elbow grease. The hardest part is the right stain. You sand, wood bleach the affected area, neutralize the bleach, dry, stain and revarnish.
If you're a little off on the stain, it'll look like a wood blemish.

If you want it perfect, sand or strip and sand the entire panel and restain.

I've been trying and trying to tell you that corner needs a light fixture … or maybe a stuffed rabbit.

If you don't solve the root cause, you will get really good at temporarily masking it.

I would try an aniline dye mixture. After sanding and stain removal, they can be blended/layered into the surrounding wood. Worth a try before replacing or veneering the existing plywood.
