If I get it back to the Gelcoat and its not too bad but faded is there a way to get the shine of the Gelcoat back ?

No, itís not nitromors itís errrrr canít remember , but it is specifically for removing paint and antifouling from gel coat.

Fading is difficult you can cut it back again with specific compounds/ cleaners but each time you loose some of the gel coat, having said that if its never been done before it might work. You can wet and dry out some of the scratches providing they are not too deep.

If the surface is bad, fill and far and once you get a flat surface roller-on a good marine paint thatís the same colour as the gel coat that way any subsequent scratches donít show.
