Try rubbing the transom with Acetone with a cotton rag after cleaning it with a weak acid like vinegar and washing it off. Acetone will reactivate the vinyl gel coat so be very light at first to see what happens.
If it gets a little 'orange peel' like texture some fine grit sandpaper (#600 - 1000) will smooth it out.
Take it from there, wear gloves and see how it goes.
Good luck.
