I have no experience with this, but you might approach it like a papier mache project, except in fiberglass. Take a large ball (like a "medicine ball" used for strength conditioning--maybe can buy from excercise stores/sites). Then apply fiberglass patching material to coat it as for a boat hull repair (you could contact West Marine for help and supplies). Then cut the opening and sand & finish. Good luck!
