I wouldn’t worry too much about the strength of the ply itself. Whatever load it takes is well spread and ply will flex slightly anyway. First of all do the epoxy repair, this will add strength in itself, then assess whether you need further reinforcing.
As 3035 said, don’t put too much epoxy on – what squeezes out has to be removed afterwards.
Do make sure you clean out the cracks as best you can – I find the wifes vacuum cleaner (don’t know why she insists it is hres – my needs are greater) with a small nozzle attachment is good at cleaning out dust and debris.
