Yes, it can be repaired and refinished. Look in the phonebook under bathtub refinishers.

Re: repair fiberglass tub

We had ours repaired after 2 cracks were found shortly after installation. I now can't tell at all where the cracks were because the repair is so good. My suggestion is to first find your local/regional plumbing supply houses (not Lowe's or Home Depot, etc. but the guys who sell mostly to plumbers) and ask them for references. I paid $75 to repair two small (dime sized or less) cracks in the tub.

Good luck.
