As Cam has said, a boat with a "shiny navy blue" is most likely painted, if the hull were still gel coat, you would describe it as "dull navy blue" unless you had waxed it in the last 45 days. Boats with shiny colored hulls are painted boats.

It is an interesting question, tho as to how to tell a painted boat, say if a boat is white...I guess you can usually find some wear-n-tear where the undercoat is visible, or you can find paint ridges around fixtures or the boottop, as you can with most car repairs.

FWIW I've been waxing and buffing my Imron painted hull for 10 years and it cleans up and looks excellent, since its white you really can't see the the minor road wear thehull has accumulated.
