My tub is rotting from the top and I'm not yet ready to replace it. Water collects along one of the short sides of the tub (not the end with the faucet, the opposite end) and that is rotting and now has a large hole.

How do I patch this hole?

When do you think you will be ready to replace it? I think it said (tub) it is ready to be replaced! –  shirlock homes Feb 9 '13 at 22:42
Q: I have a chunk of metal about the size of my palm, which is all that is left of my bathtub. I'm not ready to replace the tub. How can I re-create a vessel around this chunk of metal, which will hold enough water so that I can take a bath? –  Kaz Feb 28 '13 at 8:40
A: Let me introduce you to user11515 on diy.stackexchange.com. He has a bathtub with a hole of exactly that size ... maybe you two can work something out. –  Kaz Feb 28 '13 at 8:40
