Advice on Re gelcoating my boat

Hi can anyone one help I have osmasis really bad i started drilling it out however i came to the conclusions that i need to stip the gell coat off in order to dry the boat out which i am in the process of doing. I have the gelcoat two pack resin to re-do the boat however do i need anythink to coat the fiberglass first like a sealent or something before i start gelcoating or can i start gelcoating straight on to fiberglass once dried out
Thanks
Any advice is much appritiated

An epoxy barrier coat such as interprotect by interlux followed with bottom paint is the usual way to go. Why bother with gelcoat?
