Default Gel coat restoration

Hi All , the gel coat on my 200 SS boat is faded beyond repair ( i think ) . I have flatted it , compound and machine polished it , It then oxidises within days . Any Suggestions . Alternatively does anybody have the paint code for the lower teal/turquoise colour on the hull .
Thanks

What are you using to compound the gel coat? I have gotten good results with a wool pad, heavy compound, and rotary buffer set at 800 rpm. I use a heavy compound by Malco that is one step; you wax it after the heavy compound.
Meguiars makes a gel coat restoration kit that I have heard good reviews on.
