Default White Spots through Black Gel Coat

I have white spots that appear to be bleeding through my black gel coat. I was hoping someone could tell me what’s the issue and best solution to correct it. It shows through on one side of the boat and transom area. Thanks

That looks like surface oxidation. Plenty of threads on THT about how to polish/compound it out. Start off with the least aggressive process that will remove it. Welcome to the joys of owning a black hull. Keeping the sun off of it will slow this down.

Thanks for the info I was worried it was a gel coat issue.
