1) ALL CAPS IS SHOUTING. Turn the caps lock off, please.

2) No, you cannot gel coat right over wood - at least not with good, long lasting results. Even polyester resin isn't a good thing over wood. Epoxy is the only thing I'd use on wood, and gel coat doesn't like to stick to it either - at least without some significant surface preparation.
