      Unless it's one heck of a paint job and has a good clear coat job it might be hard to tell visually. We could always go the route of scrape check. are you thinking paint over gel?

        only reason I am asking this question is it seems a little too easy to scratch for gelcoat

          Mike: I am trying to figure out whether I need to take it to gel coater or a painter to fix this rash

            Looks like paint to me...I am guessing that because of the orange peel texture and the other color beneath the dark blue. IMO

              Looks like automotive single-stage (paint and clear combined and shot once) IMO.

                              Paint for sure! I agree with Jim@BAWS -- get rid of the paint and get back to gel coat.....
