boat finish

Can someone explain to a novice of sailboats the layers of finish on a boat ?
1... The bottom layers are different . What are they
2... List the layers starting with the fiberglass ex.. Fiberglass- Gelcoat paint ??????
3.. What is gelcoat ?
4... I want to paint my boat back red as it is now and want to use a 2-part epoxy . Can I just scuff the surface now (No blisters) and paint over it .
5.. what do I need to protect the finish after it dries
