Gel coat scratch

What is the best product to get out a scratch? This scratch is like a key on a car. There was a wire at the dock that touched my boat. I tried medium compound with a buffer and no luck so far.Name:  20180715_114944.jpeg

Looks like that’ll need wet sanding

scratches

I Had a scratch like you described on my Flat bottom Drag boat, and I had to apply a Clear coat.
the clear coat worked pretty good.
First I applied water to the the scratch to see if it would go way, That showed me that clear coat would work.
