Wet bath floor repair

Hi Friends! We have a new to us 1988 Bigfoot 17 and it has a small hole in floor of wet bath that looks like previous owners filled with a bit of silicone. There is a very very tiny flaw next to it that needs attention. Where can we go to find out what to do? Or does it need to be done professionally? Thanks for tips!

fix pic's

Take a picture of the flaw. The picture will help others give you a more accurate assessment of what is needed.
Those with other types of trailers will be able to help with knowledge of the materials and type of repair needed through visual representation.
If the wet bath has a fiberglass inner shell like in a boler silicone is not the best product as silicone will not stick to silicone.
Hope this gets you toward your fix

I will post a pic soon...I've since learned that epoxy was used which I think is what works with the fibreglass insert? My mistake - it wasn't silicone!

Yes epoxy will work. Makes sense to use epoxy particularly if epoxy was used for the first patch. Epoxy sticks well to epoxy, fiberglass, wood, metal, etc. Follow directions, e.g., existing surface must be roughed up and cleaned to promote adhesion.

EDIT: Doesn't need to be done professionally. Also an epoxy patch will be waterproof.
