Hey not sure how to navigate writing a post still. Im looking for feedback on using ferrocement for a bathtub and if anyone has experience filling them with an on demand hot water heater... ive made water tanks but not a bath tub and am worried the hot water heater wont be enough to heat up the tub....

Cool idea.
Indoor or out?
I have built a kitchen counter top out of wood scraps, with nylon window screen stapled to it.
I finished in fiber cement and hydro stop cement.
It's held up very well with constant moisture, but its never been underwater.
I recommend wood to support  a wire and mesh form, because its cheaper and easier to work with and it can easily be finished in water resistant materials for longevity.
 
Fire me boy! Cool, soothing, shameless self promotion:
