I had a similar problem with my trawler. I took it to have some Maine craftsmen replace the worst of the veneers. Although their work was very good, new teak is a lot darker than old teak so there will be no easy matching of stains to get a match. If I had it to do over I would have just painted it over with white paint after filling and smoothing out any wrinkled veneer. This is much brighter and if you leave all the solid wood drawers and trim in varnished teak it would still be quite beautiful. As it is now I have some very dark portions that were replaced next to the original much lighter colored teak.
