SF Good Questions: Rejuvenating an Eames Shell Chair?

AT:SF, Just got a great deal on this shell. Unfortunately, the fiberglass is badly scratched, making it white all around the edges (see close up). It actually looks like someone did this on purpose, tho I can't imagine why...

...The guy I bought it from suggested looking for a fiberglass sealant at a boat store. He thought that, after a very fine sanding, would restore the scratched areas. Has anyone here fixed a similar problem?
Thanks!
