How do you fix these hairline cracks in the bottom of a fiberglass tub?

There are fiberglass tub repair companies to call in the yellow pages. They can color the resin they use to the exact color of your tub, fill the cracks, and sand it out so you won't ever see it. You could try to buy some resin and DIY, but you will be doing a lot of guessing and you probably won't have the right sanding equipment to buff it out.

If there's cracks it's due to flexing from impropper installation or a cheap tub.
Any refinishing will soon fail.
