suggestions on how to fix this. I dont want it to get worse.

area.

If it's fiberglass the best method would be fiberglass... Later models
were plastic so is it really glass?

Remove loose material and rough it up prior to patching. Some also prefer
to stress relieve the ends of the cracks by drilling a hole. This would
get covered by the repair.
