    97 Seadoo GS paint - gelcoat or clearcoat?

    This is what my jetski looks like right now. Looks like the clearcoat is fading. I was thinking of repainting it. After looking around on the internet tho people are saying that automotive base/clear does not hold up to water and that pwcs are coated with gelcoat instead. But it definitely looks like its the clear thats fading. What would you guys do in this situation?

    According to the shop manual (link below), the hull is fiberglass with gelcoat.

    It was gelcoat until someone painted it.
