Worn through to gelcoat?

Ok I will fess up. I can spell "gelcoat" but I have never see it....at least as far as I know.

In the attached pic of our boat stripe (red) you can see that some of the red has flaked off and there is a VERY smooth light green material showing through.

I am presuming that this is the gelcoat.

What is best way to repair?

The white part looks like it was painted, rolled but not tipped as it has lots of bumps and what looks like unpopped bubbles. I am going to sand it smooth and repaint....or at least that is the plan. I may run out of warm days this fall before I get that far in which case I will focus on the red stripe area only and do the white next year.

Thanks
