I'd recommend picking up Don Casey's Complete Illustrated Sailboat Maintenance Manual. It's fairly comprehensive and will have most of the knowledge you need contained within for such a project boat. You'll also want to get a hold of the westsystem pamphlets of fiberglass repair using epoxy. West Marine usually stocks them and there's good solid advice and techniques that, coupled with Casey's advise, should see you through. Looks eminently repairable to me and using the above two resources will prevent you from making many time consuming mistakes in your efforts.
