What is this? Transom discoloration more than oxidation

I'm looking at this boat for sale and the previous owner left it on the lift with apparent oxidation on the transom but there are two square blocks that stand out even more. The boat was serviced at the dealership regularly with good records but nothing about this.

Any ideas what this could be?

Couldn't upload a pic so put it on imgur.

To me, it is oxidized but it looks like there was a repair done there and the gel coats are fading differently.

I would normally say repair area but with both being similar on both side it looks to be something different than what was used or additional something added at production.

XStar kept on a lift at Canyon Lake?

I was thinking repair as well but I could not figure anything that would cause damage to the same area on both sides at those spots. It it was a repair they did a good job making it smooth because running a finger across that area did not reveal any abnormalities in texture.

hehe, I didn't slide the screen over to see both sides.

It's definitely a repair and probably had clear gel coat sprayed over the blue. If you think about it, if someone was backing the boat up and the swim step went under a dock or something those are the two places it would hit.

Repair and wrong Spectrum color match.
