The hull is made from spraying the gelcoat from the outside inward. The inside of the mold is sprayed with gel coat that becomes the outside of the boat. After the multiple layers of gelcoat are sprayed, they are reinforced with fiberglass inside.

Also, that's not paint, that's the color of the gelcoat.
