Don't use Marine-Tex for the glass work. You really need to re-do the glass and add several layers of fiberglass to restore the strength of the damaged area. Use West, System Three, MAS or one of the other major epoxy brands, not MarineTex.
As for the wood... you can probably cut out the damaged sections and scarf in a replacement section. Takes a bit of woodworking skill, and access to a fairly well equipped wood working shop, but totally doable.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
