You should consult with your local high-end marine repair shop. I would think they would want to strip all the gelcoat, fair and then paint the hulll with Alwgrip or a similar paint. You'll end up wiht a boat that will look new for many years...however, you'll probably pay $200-300/foot to get there. I doubt that the repair shop will want to consider re-gelcoating the boat, with the wide-acceptance and great results from Awlgrip-type paints, I don't think anyone puts gelcoat back on...
