How about some pics so we can see what you're working with?
Sorry I don't have pics! This is the area surrounding the backstay chainplate deck penetration. I need to get this done quickly so the chainplate can be re-installed and ready for the rig to be put back together.

The dings aren't really that bad - I just wanted to reinforce the area after some repairs I've made.

Instead of fighting weather all winter and early spring, take a few days in the summer and just knock it out! You will get a better job and the work will go 4 times faster. If you can't take it inside, just wait until the weather turns.

The repair from the description should not need fiberglass cloth, just thickened epoxy and paint afterwards.
