Must admit haven't heard that one before. I think I will give it a try to see if it really does make a difference.
Getting back to Ancora's original question, I had a similar issue with water damage. I had a go at removing the effected laminate, using a heat gun very carefully together with a small spatula, it came off quite well.The mighty Fein also was a help.
As has been noted the real skill lay in matching the new teak laminate sheets to the existing teak.I bought quite a few random sheets and tried to find the best match I could.I was reasonably successful, though I don't think any self respecting shipwright would hire me.
