Painting vinyl or acrylic tub?

The house that I have bought has tubs and surrounds that had previously been painted. Now, the paint is peeling and whatever is underneath is nasty looking. I would like to replace both tubs and surrounds, but can't afford it. I would like to know if anyone has had the experience of painting or refinishing their tub. I'm not sure what they are made of. I would guess vinyl. Please help.............DebA

I would remove it, replace it with marine grade paint after properly preparing it with primer and sanding.

Thank you. I'll look into that.
