Gentlemen I need a little help I am sanding the interior and the exterior geting ready to gel-coat the inside and paint the outside. I started to scrap the outside bubbles that I have when off comes about 1/16th. of an inch part seems to be paint I don't know what the other part is it appears to be resin. My question is how do I repair before I regel-coat and then paint. The boat is a 1965 Sakonnet this appears to be my only stumbling block so far any help in this matter is greatly appreciated.

they are called blisters and are common and non threatening. You just fill them and continue. They have a barrier coat you can apply to keep these from coming back. Talk to any marine store, interlux makes it.

After I sanded their were what appeared to be white spots in the fiberglass when I punctured them a brown fluid came out do I sand down below this layer and repair or just puncture and then glaze over.
