Bumpy Gel Coat

The person who attempted the gel-coating on my 13' Whaler left it all bumpy then they painted over it. Looking to confirm my notion that I need to just sand the whole thing down and start over. Any tricks to keeping the Gel Coat smooth? I also noticed that some where talking about coloring the gel coat? This seems more attractive than painting? Any feedback would be really appreciated. thanks.

That gel coat isnt cheap! $17 for 2oz jars. Ive done a lot of work with it and heres a few tips:
At 60 degrees room temp. the gel coat will be fully hard in about an hour. peel off wp and let it sit for 15 min before sanding smooth. Remember, air DOESNT cure gel coat!!!

Air DOES cure Spectrum 2 oz. gelcoat *paste*.
Air DOES NOT cure standard liquid gelcoat, unless a certain type of wax (as used in the paste) is mixed in.
