    Match what was there in overall dimension and fiberglass thickness.

    It worked for the past 20 years and will work for another 20.

    Otherwise, post the size of the boat and engine.

    I'd go with what FMS says and simply replace what was there. Any good online boatbuilding source will work for epoxy, fiberglass and fasteners. I'd use exterior ply from the lumberyard for stringers, especially if you'll be covering it in glass.
