Can a crack be repaired on f/g shower floor?

I have a stall shower with a fiberglass floor and a 3-4 inch crack. As long as I don't bear my weight down on it, the crack does not separate or leak. I caulked over the crack line as a precaution. Is there a better repair I can do without having to replace the floor?

It would seem that the shower was not properly supported when installed. It should have been set on a bed of mortar. This keeps the fiberglass from flexing and cracking as happened to you. They make fiberglass repair kits but unless you support the floor, you will have the same problem again. Good luck.
