Hi everyone, my gunnels have heavy oxidation and some cracking. Any ideas how to correct this? Products and process for a noob? See pictures.

Hard to really tell from the pics whether it’s paint or gelcoat. But here is my take on it... needs to be stripped down with 60-80 grit and re done! Nothing will bring that back to a nice finish!

If gelcoat, was either applied too thin or over reduced and applied too thin, and or done in direct sunlight!
If paint, I’m guessing a one part and or oil based product again done in the sunlight.
Both paint and gelcoat the surface prep was probably sub standard as well. Sorry, but all I have for you IMO is it needs stripped and redone.

You are in Florida. Find a supplier such as Fiberglass coatings, Fiberglass Florida, Etc... and go buy your materials from them. No, I would not recommend either of the products listed. That’s a whole lotta work to go through to try to save a couple pennies on materials. If paint I would go with a quality 2k urethane over an epoxy primer.
