OK guys, got to good deal on a large cultured marble tub + surround from local manufacter. My first pick was a large cast iron tub but no way for me to easily move it in the house. Cultured marble man is going to install the tub and surround for me. The material looks very strong and durable. Gel coat on the unit may scratch a little over time.

My question is, any experiances (good/bad) with the stuff for tubs? Better or about equal to acrylic?
