If your foils are moulded then you can polish them with the marine equivalent of T-Cut that you might use on a car. Boat Rubbing contains a rather gentler abrasive than T-Cut that hopefully will not wear through the gel-coat.

You could start with a rub over using something like 600 Wet and Dry with a little washing-up liquid to make it nice and slippery, then 800 or 1000, finally rubbing compound on a good cotton cloth, old bed-sheets are good, turning and replacing the cloth when it has picked up the colour, finish with a good wax. Painting is the last resort.
