Yes, use more coats of blue paint.

Even if the blue was original gelcoat, when you scratch it the "white" structure under it will show. And however you paint, once you paint you must always repaint. Even the folks who make the best "coatings" will tell you, it has to be redone every 10 years or so. And maintained in between.
