My plan as of now is wet sand 1000, 1500, 2000, followed by compound, polish and wax. Good idea, bad idea? Any input will be appreciated!
Welcome. Your at the right place!

I found http://mastercraft.com/teamtalk/show...elcoat+restore by searching "gelcoat restore" which has good information so no need to restate. Lots of information to be found on this subject just by searching. Basically, wet sanding can be used to get rid of light scratches (deep ones require repairing gelcoat - whole other subject), compound to get rid of oxidation, polish/wax to really make it shine.
