I have both a battery and a bilge pump you are welcome to but their only value would be for ballast. Good work on the boat.
I haven't worked much on getting the gelcoat back to life on my boat yet, but there are quite a few threads on here where guys took quite a bit of time working from coarse to extremely fine while working on returning the original shine. Don't know if you have gone through any of the old threads yet but I suspect if you continued wetsanding to a much finer grit or used some compound following the wetsanding you should get the shine you are looking for without a clearcoat. Just passing along some of the info I have read on this site - not from any firsthand experience. Keep up the good work.
