Rudder repair cont.

I followed everyone''s good advise from last fall, pulled my rudder, took it home, dried it out, consulted West Systems and am now ready to repair the delaminated spots.

New problem: As I was sanding off the bottom paint in the affected areas, I discovered someone has removed all the gel coat from the rudder (except one 2" square). The surface of the entire rudder is bare fiberglass cloth/matt, seemilngly in good shape for a 30 year old rudder. What should I use to coat the rudder with now that it is down to bare glass?

Thanks
