Depends on how big the crack is, some can be repaired, some can't. Just sand through the gel coat and put a layer of cloth and resin over small cracks. Big cracks you just use more resin and cloth or matt. Sand it smooth, use a good sealer and paint. Pretty simple process, just alot of work involved.
