Hi, you will be fine with the Gel Coat. Gel coat is only a problem if its on or very near the foam core. There is a 2 or 3 minute window when the gel coat/epoxy generates "self heat", it can get very hot and it can melt the foam core during this short period. But as the scratches are shallow and have the wood between it and the foam, it will defo be good
