In Topic: Epoxy with uv inhibitors

I've had OK luck with traditional marine spar varnish over epoxy.  8 coats minimum.

 I like Epifanes.  It's higher in solids, so it builds more quickly.

If exposed to sun, plan on a refresher coat every three months.

In Topic: Grinding gel coat in a corner

I don't know what radius you need to get to, but there are 1" sanding drums which i've used with a corded drill and 6-12" extension shafts to clean up corners and fillets.  

If I got a decent scuffing on solid gelcoat, I'd be happy bonding glass over that.  I would not need to remove it all.
