Painting or gel coat advice

About to start refinishing the outside of the boat and want some advice before I take on this part. Basically the PO painted over the original gel coat, the original color is yellow with brown flake. I want to go white with blue flake, any advice on the best products I already contacted Awlgrip and interlux neither one have a product they recommend for spraying the flake. Thanks for any help. I attached a picture of the layers

If you do paint instead of gel coat you will drive yourself crazy trying not to scratch it on the dock. Paint is great if you never use it, may I suggest a wrap.
