Gelcoat shower chip / crack

I'm looking for some advice on filling in these chips / cracks and making them relatively inconspicuous. I've tried researching gelcoat repair on the internet, but everything I can find is boating related.

Should I go with a boating product, or Elmer's fiberglass tub & tile, or bondo & paint, or something else altogether?

Thanks in advance...

Gelcoat shower chip / crack

Go with what the Tub manufacturer's Website tells you to. Personally, due to Gelcoat tubs wear easier then Acrylic/Fiberglass, I would go with the Manufacturer solution.
