    Yes, it all depends on how oxidized it is. If its just light, you can buff it out by hand or machine with a good compound for gel coat($10 @ Walmart, 3M or Attwood brands).
    If its bad you will need to color sand it.
    You can start with 800 to 1000 grit wet/dry paper, then polish with machine and compound.
    Once you get it shining good, wax it once or even twice with a good wax to protect it from oxidizing so soon again.

    Dark colors like red, black, green gel coat oxidize fast. White is not so bad and takes a long time to oxidize.
    Good luck!
