Question bathroom tub

Please HELP!!!!!!!
My husband and I own a mobile home with a fiberglass garden tub in our bathroom. The problem is the tub has a small crack near the drain. Is there a way to fix this crack temporarily? Money is kind of tight right now, so that is why we cannot replace it. Thanks so much for any advice you have.

Cool

Yes, there is a very easy and inexpensive way to fix a hairline crack in a fiberglas tub.
Go to a hardware or appliance store and get some Appliance Touch-Up liquid.
It actually is made to repair chipped enamel, and it drys hard as a rock. It comes in bright white only, as far as I know, however.
It's in a small bottle with a cap brush (like nail polish).
Clean and dry the crack (I use a hairdryer for this).
Brush on the Appliance Touch-Up and smooth the edges with a Q-tip with acetone (nail polish remover).
Allow it to dry overnight.
Apply a second coat if necessary, but it usually isn't unless you have deep chip (it shrinks a bit).
Good Luck!
Mike
