well for filler there are lots of options. the simplest route is gel coat paste from west marine, thicken it some with micro balloons. or epoxy with micro ballons, either way use a spreader to apply the paste you make to fill the scratches. it will take several coats with sanding and degreasing/dewaxing in between. i would use micro balloons so its easy to sand smooth, then a rolled on finish coat of what ever you used un thickened as a sealer, that you can block sand smooth, then paint.

if you go back here and search there are lots of posts on this. if you want click on my user name and view all my posts there are a few threads i have given better more complete info on as have others in the same threads

SD the pic he put up in the second post looks like it right below the toe rail.

Guidera if you use the silica make sure you dont leave it very proud of the the surface the silica is like sanding rock, it takes a while, and is very hard to do with out sanding down the surrounding gelcoat
