Fixing the poor Avon

Hey guys

I'm about to fix My Avon 3.10
Any suggestions about methods materials etc is appreciated!!

As you can see its the front locker that had some cracks, now holes
I removed some gel coat and is thinking about repairing with polyester and glass fiber, and then some gelcoat, and maybe threadmaster or similar cover.
But I also discovered that there are cracks on the sides of this structure, against the sponsoons, on both sides. Don't really know what to do about that. adding ribs or just a few layers from the inside.
all the green stuff is the plastic padding thing I tried last spring, had some fibers in it so thought at

What's caused the cracks, has an anchor been floating about in the locker?
I'd try and repair the inside by doing all of the top in one go so your strengthening the entire surface, same with the sides.
You be able to lay some csm on the top and maybe finish it with surface tissue so you can get a decent finish.
Some one else will be able to give you better advice than me but it's a start...

ABOUT:
probably nothing from the inside. It's rather some heavy guy sitting on it, or just trying to board from a height. As in a small jump down to the bow locker. But then the surrounding water should be dampening it, but the locker was obviously not strong enough.

Method?
I just might have to strengthen it all from the inside, just have to buy alot more glass fibre, and then its a pain since either you get your head in for vision or hands inside for working (small boat).

Material?
what about 4 layers inside and maybe 2-3 layers outside where i cleaned around the cracks. but i guess that depends on the fibre thickness and such..
