Scuffed Gelcoat

Somebody scraped the front cap of our 360IBL. It is not badly damaged, just scraped some of the paint off the gelcoat. It is only a surface scrape, not down into the fiberglass/plastic. I'm not so concerned about appearance since it is so small, my concern is delamination if I don't re-seal it. Would it be acceptable to by a rattle can of clear coat at Autozone and spray it to seal it or do I need to get a gelcoat repair kit?

To the best of my knowledge, delamination​ typically occurs when moisture gets behind the fiberglass. Unless the scuff has worn through the fiberglass, I don't think that delamination would occur. However, if there is a crack in there (or one forms later) then you could have a potential issue.

I'd repair the gel coat just to make sure there are no issues in the future.
