the crack. If the crack is on the bottom of the bath then you cannot repair
from below as the bath will be standing on a wooden base. If the crack is
inaccessible you will need to lift the bath, so you might as well buy a new
bath. Also, if the crack is in an area subject to flexing movement with the
weight of water and the person standing/sitting in the bath, then this is
likely to shorten the length of time that the repair will last. Epoxy resin
in the crack, and fibre glass matting and resin to provide support
underneath, might work.
After further thought, if the crack is in the bottom of the bath you will
not be able to apply any repair underneath the bath unless you remove the
plywood base, which is glued on and which may not come off without causing
