Default Rubbing compound / wax what should I use?

Hey guys I have a small area on the back of my boat where the paint is rubbed off about half the size of a dime, and there are a couple of scratches,not to deep. I want to touch up the paint and buff the scratches out. Should I try a rubbing compound? wax? what brand? I will try to post a picture.

you'll probably need to do a bit of fine sanding, maybe one two and three thousand grit before buffing. I use a course compound like Totally Buff from Fountain of Youth or 3M has some course stuff to.
