It's pretty easy. Just pick up some fiberglass strips, resin, and prep the area first. Prep with some rubbing alcohol or such to clean it up good, put on the resin, add fiberglass strips, more resin, strips, ect. Do a kind of cross hatch pattern for added strength. You can get most of this at a marine supply store, probably even home depot/lowes also.
Make sure when you cut the fiberglass (or work with it) to wear a mask or respirator. When you cut it, you're sending little shards of glass in the air you're breathing in... lungs don't take to kindly to that. The resin is pretty potent smelling too but I don't think it's very harmful though.
