All you can do is try. It may not bring back the original color but you may bring out a little more life.

with the way you have it broken down. it would be easier for you to go ahead and repaint it now, rather than wait. if i had a boat stripped down like that. i would go and repaint it. of course that is if you have the tools to do it with. or you could have the vocation school do it for you all you have to pay for is the paint/materials. or at least that was all we did way back when i was in school, lol. check it out.
