Re: epoxy an underwater crack
Assuming you can empty the tub and dry it out any standard marine epoxy, West, Maas, System 3 should do the job.
Go to the west systems website for directions.
Bevel back 10 to one and fill in.
At first I thought you had to do an underwater repair. That would require a special epoxy for the purpose.
I noticed you said plastic nor fiberglass. So that being the case maybe some kind of superglue or glue made for gluing plumbing parts.
Most marine epoxies say they don't bind with plastic. Depends on the plastic.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
