I had the same problem (delamination on the portside cabin side under center portlight in the saloon on the mahogany where the two pieces meet) The mahog. was so rotten that I cut it out in an inverted "V" around the portlight. I just replaced the wood with a piece of oak veneer, spliced in... I will probably end up painting that part of the cabin wall. The portlights were not difficult for me to remove - I have already done the starboard side, removed all 3, cleaned and rebedded them I used 3M 101 I think, - I've heard that Boatlife is good too, I would not use 5200... I also epoxied all around the edges of the holes first for a good seal...I'll post some pics of this "little" project soon...
