I just polished up the inner hull of the family 69 Sakonnet and got it back to shade of blue and a level of gloss we haven't seen since the Reagan administration. For the polishing I used some compound I had left over from the first stage rub-out of the repaint on an old car I'm restoring and it gave fantastic results with very little effort. It's a 3M product I purchased at a local auto parts supplier. I'll check the product name and post it. To seal the finish I used a Fleetwax which is marketed for boats and aircraft which provids a good long-lasting finish.
As for the cracks and chips, you're going to have to break out the resin and sandpaper!

The very pretentious name of the stuff I used is 3M Imperial Microfinishing Compound. Like I said before, little effort, big results!
