Any way to remove this junk?
It bugs the crap outta me and I want it gone. Will wet sanding and buffing take care if it? It's not that deep but you can definitely feel the groves. Or do I have to buy a gelcoat repair kit...

You can minimize the visibility of the scratches by wet sanding and buffing, but won't get rid of them completely.

That trailer isn't helping minimize those scratches at all.

before you decided to wet stand and buff and try to remove those scratches i would remove the ski from the trailer and replace the bunks and any rollers with new ones. that is half of your problem

i've heard that the rule of thumb is if you run your fingernail across it and it catches your nail you cant completly remove the scratch.
I would wetsand starting with maybe 1200 grit and then move up to 1800, then compound it and finally wax it to bring the shine back. its kind of hard to tell how deep the scratches are from the picture but if you feel like your working forever with the 1200 you could go lower.
