This can also be called, "fish-eye" and it's generally caused by the "kicking time" added to color of the tub and not the fiberglass. Fiberglass when applied needs to be "faired out" (sanded smoothly with fine sand paper so you can run your hand over it and feel no bumps or rough spots.) It's important because it leads to either a good spray job of enamel based paints or a bad job.
