Thank you for the Private Message with questions about your boat project. I try really hard to keep any of my answers, (typing time), on the "public side of the forum", not in a private message.

My question is which polisher, compound/polish/wax and pads should take care of this?

The fastest and most effective way to remove dead, oxidized gel-coat is with a wool pad and a compound on a rotary buffer. Then remove the swirls if the color is dark and it's important to you to have a swirl-free or fairly swirl-free finish.
The Flex PE14 is a lightweight, compact rotary buffer but it's going to be a challenge to operate it with one hand. Can you operate a rotary buffer right now?
