usually clouding is caused by trapped solvent in your paint try using a slower grade of reducer so it holds the top coat open longer.

Are you using a marine paint, or an automotive urethane?

Alexseal is a very good marine paint, similiar to Awlgrip.
It's an LPU and those require a few days to fully cure.

Swvalcon is probably right about the trapped solvents
causing the cloudiness. Or it might be trapped humidity.

I would wait a couple more days and give the trapped
solvents or moisture time to evaporate out, and the
gloss to come back.

Awlgrip is a pretty good color but im not a friend of the awlgrip`s ultrabuild it gets to hard and its a Nightmare to sand down.. okay it has gone a few weeks since I've painted the Wild Flower boat butt it is still the same way!? Humidity Wat Cinda humidity percentage do you have when you paint ower there??
