2. Never a tub
but I've repaired plenty of boats in the past. For a small job like this I'd check your local auto part store for a small repair kit.

The repair will be stronger if you can apply fibreglass cloth and resin to both sides ie. inside and outside. Make sure the surface is clean and well sanded and follow instructions on the kit for mixing two pot expoxies.
