My personal preference is to not finish gel-coat boats out with rotary buffers but switch to ANY dual action polisher instead.

Although white gel-coats won't show holograms as easily as darker colored gel-coats, they can be there just the same and they create a more open surface which can lead to oxidation faster than a completely flat, smooth surface.
