More info needed. Where are the cracks, surface cracks or all the way through the part. Sure it is gel coat and not paint? Lastly, a picture always gives better information than imagining.

If you drill a round hole at each end it will stop the crack from getting bigger until you can come up with a fix.

These cracks are under my old faded out decals and are common on fiberglass rv's that have a get coating.

Find a reputable "marine" fibreglass repair person.
They work with Gelcoat everyday and a good person will colour match perfectly.
Colour matching is an art, and not a DIY project.

The only way someone learns the "art" is via DIY.
Helps if one isn't color blind too (my problem)
