How do you know?

How do you know if your boat is panted or if it is Gelcoat?

Unless it's one heck of a paint job and has a good clear coat job it might be hard to tell visually. We could always go the route of scrape check. are you thinking paint over gel?

Can you tell from this pic?

only reason I am asking this question is it seems a little too easy to scratch for gelcoat

Looks like paint to me...I am guessing that because of the orange peel texture and the other color beneath the dark blue. IMO

Looks like automotive single-stage (paint and clear combined and shot once) IMO.
