Yes- get to Waterlogged as the clear resident expert .The guru of restorations like yours. From my chair you will need to fabricate the stringers as I've never seen pre fab .As to glass, there are two topics to address. First is resin- epoxy vs poly. Second is cloth and fabric- what to use where. For sealing and bonding stringers and related epoxy is far stronger ands better choice. As to cloth & fabric you'll probably end up with a couple different types and weights. Anyway, Waterlogged can best advise you on this as well. Take a deep breath if you've not done stringers before. It's a task but is quite doable and you'll end up with a better than factory result. Good luck! Post pictures!
