anyone mess with fiberglass?

hey guys, I'm going to be buildinga hot tub in the summer, and I had originally thought about using wood for the whole frame. recently the idea of buying some fiberglass cloth came to me and I was wondering whether you guys know about it or could point me to some useful websites...

will it be more cost-effective?
will i have to paint it?
how will it hold the shape of a hot tub interior?

thanks guys.

Good place to check out the fiberglass for something like this is go to boats. try

You have to build a form and glass over it to make a tub. Or you can say build the tub out of wood like and line the inside of it with the glass. Id go this way.
No you dont have to paint it. Or you can use an Awlgrip paint on it or a Gel coat if you want.
