Wonder if any of the automotive films would work. In any case, I'd personally just ensure there was always a good sealant on the paint. That would make staining less likely.
I'm a huge fan of Ultima Paint Guard Plus. Wipe it on, walk away. Works great on the boat as long as it is applied on gelcoat that has no oxidization. So basically I'd buff the gelcoat with a polish, then apply Ultima. As long as you reapply once in a while, you should be good. I apply it to my car once every 6 months and it only takes 15 minutes since you don't have to wipe it off. Not sure how long it will last in the marine environment but I applied it to my boat's gray hull about 4 months ago and it still beads water.
