    If they are just normal scratches on the bottom (not major gouges where you can see glass), just sand them out with a vibratory power sander. I do 100 grit --> 220 --> 400 --> 800 --> polishing compound --> swirl and haze remover. It brings it to a near mirror finish.

    if they are any type of gouge, even if not thru the gelcoat, dont bother sanding, you are just gonna thin down the surronding gelcoat too much.
    get a gelcoat repair kit they are like 30 bux, you can even get exact color match, rough sand the edges of the gouge so its more of a V in the scratch instead of straight walls( imagine grand canyon is your scratch, you wanna sand the inside walls of the scratch into a V shape)
    then fill with gelcoat patch. you can us a plastic paint spatula or something to get it to smooth out and just fill the scratch , not blobbed all over the hull.
    if necessary, wet sand and reapply.
